We drove out to Campanment de la Victoria this morning, north east of Bon Aire beyond Alcudia. A first for me and with fabulous views back across Pollenca bay. Saw several booted eagles and a raven. Set the scope up for a brief seawatch and picked up definite shearwater heading north east out of the bay towards the open sea. Very light underneath, long wings, twisting as it flew low to the water. Is this Scopolis?
Called in at Tucan marsh on the way back, lots of little grebe and dozens of crag martins. Other birds included kingfisher, pochard, coot, gadwall and tufted duck plus yellow legged and black headed gulls.
Final stop at Can Cuarassa and a look at the ponds and a walk along the back roads. At least a dozen chiffchaff plus hoopoe, stonechat, tree pipit, pair of pintail, gadwall, teal and marsh harrier.
Travelling back home tomorrow a
