Very evident migration today, 00's Bee eater flying north also 00's Pallid Swift, Swallow and House Martin. Woodchat Shrike are arriving also good numbers of Black Kite, Short-toed and Booted Eagle drifting northwards. Most of this movement ahead of storm front from southwest.

Wow, always something to surprise me here in the Serrania de Ronda. I stumbled upon a 'true' albino young Stonechat, so very rare and I felt privileged to have been witness to this unusual occurrence! Luckily I was able to return the next day along with friend and colleague Pieter Verheij, armed with camera and video! To see video, photos and article please visit this link: http://www.spanishnature.com/birds/72-andalucia/176-albino-stonechat.html

Managed some good photographs and the bird certainly provided me with a lifetime experience, having seen many so called albinos it was good to find this extremely rare example of a 'true' albino and a Stonechat to boot!

Hi Peter
Just to let you know we followed the route you gave us for Sevilla and we were not disappointed lots of storks and also egrets and Bonellis and a short toed eagle and some flamingos at a small holding unfortunately the reserve we seen the Storks at was closed and also the reserve past vent de Casa was also closed but were lucky enough to still get good views from roadside. Thanks again for everything Colin & Kyra.
PS. we will be in touch again at some point and will highly recommend you to other bird enthusiasts.

Interesting note from a friend Robert yesterday!

Quote:

Hi Peter,
 
yesterday we were at Montejaque and first met Mike and his wife, than saw an adult Short toed, which was always looking up - and above it was the reason: a juvenile Spanish Imperial (I think a female, because it almost had the same wingspan like the Griffs) circeld and than glided toward the Bonelli's nest rock, where it was attacked by an adult Golden Eagle. I was nearly to a heart attack! ...one thing I forgot: a long-legged Buzzard was also there!

Later we saw 4 Goldies between Serrato and El Burgo, an adult pair and two younger birds, male and female - and a Bonelli's. This species was also found perched on the tower behind Cuevas del Becerro.
 
 
Best wishes, Robert

One heck of a list for sure Oliver, but Robert is a raptor nut and will spend hours in one place giving birds a chance to show! I went up to the site the next day, but dipped on everything other than Griffon (00's) and Black Vulture (2 adults), plus the pair of Bonelli's getting rather fruity with each other! Did have Imperial (immature) near Old Ronda on Saturday.
