Guadalhorce-Mouth near Málaga
August 17 2011

Dear reader!

And here a few sceneries from our visit to the Guadalhorce-Mouth in the late afternoon hours. The bulk of Gulls obviously was at the Ro Viejo and it was rather quiet at the big lagoon, but we discovered these Dunlins

and this beautiful and

already far travelled Curlew Sandpiper:

A group of Red Shanks caught attention with their melodic calls, while

the Little Ringed Plover couple still was watching its only survived chick, which is growing up perfectly:

Again and again the elegance of the Greenshanks fascinates me:

Mr. Little Egret performs a perfect landing:

The sun already had set, as the Kingfishers did us the favor, to take seat in front of the observaton hut:

We just wanted to set off for home as we saw in the advanced dawn something landing in front of the observation hut. And thanks to ISO 6400 this very grainy photo was made of this beautiful Whimbrel:

Best regards
