My birding day at Ghadira Nature Reserve (1 Viewer)

Today I went to one of the two reserves we have down here, Ghadira. I came around 45 minutes too late to see a very scarce Spoonbill:C! Well I saw my 1st Hoopoe of the year and a female Lesser Kestrel soaring over the garigue area behind the reserve.
Inside there were a Pochard with 2 Ferruginous Ducks ;) all adult males! There were also a Black-winged Stilt, 8+ Little Ringed Plovers which breed in the reserve and 3 Little Stints. I added the scarce Marsh Sandpiper and the more frequent Wood Sandpiper to my list.:t: (123 now) Around 6 Yellow Wagtails flew about and the resident Moorhens.
Around 10 Swallows flew overhead with a House Martin. There were a few Willow Warblres, 2 late Robins, 2 Blackcaps, 1 Chiffchaff, 2 adult male Blue Rock Thrushes feeding outside. Then the extremely common Sardinian W., Cetti's W. Zitting Cisticola and Spanish Sparrow.
