La Janda

We spent a glorious morning at La Janda and having entered the area we spotted several Common Sandpipers, flocks of Goldfinch and Siskins.  


  Further down the track, we stopped to scan the rice fields where we spotted quite a good number of Glossy Ibis, White Storks and several Spoonbills.

Glossy Ibis

We continued our drive until we reached another section of the rice fields. There were eight Marsh Harriers flying low over the fields searching for prey and it was a joy to watch them.

We also managed to see:
  • Common Buzzards
  • Black-winged Kite
  • Red Kite
  • Sparrowhawk
  • Juvenile Bonelli's Eagle
  • Griffon Vulture
  • Hen Harrier
  • Grey Heron
  • Cattle Egret
  • Little Egret
