Perfect Saturday. Visit to Albuferata tower, Maristany and ending up with Marvellous presentation on Mallorcan Subspps at La Gola by Christina.(sorry for the bad photo).

Bird seen today included Red Kite, Booted Eagles, Marsh Harriers, Great White, Little and Cattle Egrets, Stone Curlews(H), Common and red crested Pochards, Little Grebes, Moorhens, Fantailed and Cetti warblers.

And of course Subspps Crossbills.

Booted eagles continue to be the most numerous migrant raptor yet again. Before last year, I hardly ever saw any entering or leaving Mallorca.
Last year there were record numbers and this year looks like being the same with 37 yesterday and 68 today.
It will be interesting to see what the final figure is.
Also some Hobby, migrant Kestrels and Black Kite.

A Short-eared owl at the Cap just now, quite a rare bird here in Mallorca.

Thanks Steve as usual for your photos. It keeps us all going during lean times.
I particularly liked the Spotted redshank and Ruff together, a nice comparison.

156 Booted eagles was the total for the long weekend at the Cap.
All birds flew to the south very high.
Thanks Lalo et al for the information.
I will be there next weekend.

Boat trip in Alcudia and Pollença bays, Saturday 13th

5 Peregrines at cap Pinar, more than 100 Scopoli's in the crossing of Pollença bay, 23 Eleonora's, many of them chasing migrants, around Cap Formentor. And one Willow warbler entered the boat cabin trying to escape from the falcons.

Not an expert, but when you click “post reply” you can scroll down and there’s a “manage attachments” button. It’s pretty self-explanatory from there on. You add photos one at a time (max 5 per post), but file size can be an issue.

Unless things have changed since my last visit, it's an area that's not strictly open to the public, so not somewhere to go birding.

Highlights at Albufereta this afternoon ; single Green shank, Green Sandpiper and a Bittern in flight. All from the Club Pollentia platform. Then the rain came!

Never had a issue with Silott, Playa de Muro in 17 years, parking is a problem so it can be a bit of a walk from the hotels on the opposite side of the road on the MA12, its between Salbufera and Can picafort, plenty of people run/cycle down the track at the weekend.
