Chris Kehoe states: "I was actually in Portugal at the time but the roost site on a sandbar at the river mouth is right on the border with Spain and it was definitely seen flying in Spanish airspace. I only viewed the bird with binoculars at 400m+ range and took a few images with my bridge camera, including the photo above. The bird appears to be an adult or near-adult; at least I cannot see a dark bill tip".
