Lol. You were both right with the change of tack. Griffons they were. C40+ of them.

Is that the viewpoint just along the road to the Teba Gorge? Had a flock of 50+ Choughs there earlier this year. Plus a Warbler whose song I didn't recognise and didn't see!

I just looked Teba up on the map Jon and it was certainly in that area.

Possibly a bit of a stinker this one. Taken in South Wales today on an inland pond. The smaller bird in the picture please.

Well, it's almost dunlin sized but slightly smaller / very pale underpants / slightly shorter and straighter bill. Cannot confirm whether or not it has a hind toe. Wing bar not prevalent though.
Juvenile sanderling?
