No safari would be complete without flamingos so we went to Alcazar de San Juan and saw 300+ Greater Flamingo and a single Lesser Flamingo. Also here were 2 White-headed Duck, Black-necked Grebes, Red-crested Pochards and hundreds of other waterfowl.
So there ends the three day Iberian Safari (pic 3 Vincent ) and now I am on my way to the Azores for some winter birding.
Other interesting birds seen on this trip were the spanish forms of Green Woodpecker and Long-tailed Tit and also we saw two Black Wheatears at the dam today. Good to see common birds like Hawfinch, Sardinian Warbler, Black Redstarts, Woodlarks, Red-legged Partridge, Dartford Warbler, Serins and Hoopoe which are a treat back home. Also more migration today- a big influx of Blackcaps and Black Redstart so spring migration is well underway in this part of the world.
