Yesterday I spent an hour or so in the morning photographing the Yellow-browed Warbler at the shopping centre in town and then we drove through the mountains in the afternoon to Ajuy and then photographed some tame Barbary Ground Squirrels in the afternoon back in town.
Today I checked out a couple of sites including a Sewage Farm at La Oliva (Ebird list HERE ) and the pools around Rosa del Taro (Ebird list HERE). Best bird again was another Yellow-browed Warbler at Rosa del Taro reedbed. Seems like there is a Yellow-browed in every suitable piece of habitat out here.

Cattle Egrets at the Sewage Farm at La Oliva- also about 20 Moorhens here but despite my best efforts- no rare African Crakes. Another Allen's Gallinule has been discovered on the island, in the south at Costa Calma so we are heading there tomorrow

Ruddy Shelduck- a surprising characteristic bird of Fuerteventura- present in gorges and widely across the landscape prominent with its clown like calls

Rosa Fel Taro- an interesting complex of pools and a reed bed in this area
