10th September 2018 – Majorca

Following some very heavy overnight thunderstorms we started the day with a visit to the smaller nature reserve of S’Albefuereta just north of Alcudia and then, after lunch, we returned to S’Albufera. It was extremely humid and most of the hides were quite unbearable. Perseverance was rewarded with good views (and some good shots) of black-winged stilts, spotted redshank, green sandpiper, spotted flycatchers, purple and grey herons  and even an avocet.
