After several years of talking about it, I finally took on the challenge of a cycle back from Benidorm to our villa in La Marina. So after a nice day out with the family, I got on my bike and pedalled south. Most of the route was on main roads or through coastal towns, but I somehow ended up on some (very) rough tracks along the coast south of Villa Joyosa, and in one valley, there were plenty of warblers in the scrub, plus a second lifer for the trip (long awaited!).
107: Short-toed Lark* - lifer

And in the last few days of the holiday, a few more bike rides added:
108: Black-crowned Night-heron*
109: Jackdaw
110: Quail*

* 3 species not on a previous list
