Erik, if you come this way again, please let me know - we live (part time) near Campos and I would really like to meet you!Monday we decided to go Es Salobrar. It was a little late before we got off, so we started with a mallorqian Menú del dia, which we always enjoy, at the Bar Es Pins in Campos. We were at the Es Salobrar around 3,30 pm and most of the birds were far away. We counted some 100 flamingos, almost the same amount of avocets, one common sandpiper, few kentish plovers, shelduck, shoveler, red kite, stonechat, black redstart and a zitting cistola, which showed its tail nicely. Very quiet. But our drive home was spectacular (Ses Salinas, S'Alqueria Blanca, towards Portocristo, Son Macia and on) with the almond trees flowering in the setting sun. It seems to be the right time right now. And as there are few almond trees left in the north, wee enjoyed it even more.
Tuesday we went to Maristany. Lots of shovelers, marsh harrier, gulls (audouin, black-headed and yellow-legged), little grebe, great crested grebe, red-crested pochard, common pochard, moorhen, coot, crag martin, house martin and barn swallow (no red-rumped unfortunately), serin, house sparrow, cetti, chiffchaff, white wagtail, blackbird and goldfinch. It is a nice place to spend a little time.
