A great morning at the Cap.
156 Scopoli’s shearwaters went out from Cabrera at first light heading east.
Nothing much else happened until the rest of the group turned up.
Ten of us enjoyed huge groups of Bee-eaters swirling around calling all the time, over 100 for sure but it’s often difficult to locate them all.
One group of five Black Kite, another group of eight, three of Marsh Harrier and a Hobby.
It’s still very hot and humid but should cool down a bit soon.
We are still waiting for the first Honey Buzzard to come through.
Mike

Hello,
here you have the last birdlist of la Gola.
https://www.ctolagola.com/birdlist-l...llistat-d-aus/

On Saturday, in the surroundings of s'Amarador, Santanyí (P.N Mondragó) 3 Night Herons, at least one Green Sandpiper, still one Nitghtjar singing and two Garden Warblers (these last two trapped in the bird-ringing station).

Regards,
Cristina.

Morning walk round Llenaire produced, still a couple of Redstarts, 2 Willow warbs, Male Pied Fly, 6 Tree Pipit South and a Flava wag.
Minimum of 37 Stone Curlew in ploughed field, but calls from a couple of grassier fields suggested a number more.

A long Eared owl was in flight late last night on edge of PP.

Had a flock of Bee-eaters fly south (frustratingly heard only) on Sunday afternoon heard from our villa - which is up in the hills behind S’Albufereta. Also a Pied Flycatcher in the wooded area at Parc de la Gola yesterday afternoon. Plenty of Stone Curlew calling at night

An evening walk to the lighthouse at Porto Petro produced 244 Scopoli’s shearwaters and the welcome diversion of 3 Balearic shearwaters.
It was a beautiful calm evening which made seawatching an absolute pleasure as opposed to my memories of being huddled up on the Kent coastline having to contend with biting cold winds and rain.

Walk to Ca'n Cuarassa 07.00-09.00
1's & 2's of Flava wags through with a steady trickle of Swallow.
11 Spotless Starling seemed a good number.
3 Green Sands, 3 Tawny Pipits, 2 Hoopoe and 4 Whinchat together were the best of the rest.

Went looking for them a short while ago but unsure of location - found a few ploughed fields near Llenaire but no Stone Curlews. Can you help?

Best looked for in the newly ploughed field on the right, heading from the Llenaire roundabout on the back road heading for the Llenaire Hotel.
Early morning seems to be best when there more active, usually strung out on the other side of the pylons. Later in the morning they seem to settle down and blend in with ruts.

Scop's Owl calling near to Pollensa Park Hotel 12. 45 (Port de Pollensa). 1st I've had in the vacinity of the town in bi-annual visits for 3 years, when before they were a nightly occurrence.
Probably a passage bird.
Given me the biggest birding smile so far!!
