La Laguna de Medina

After our last trip we agreed that La Laguna de Medina would be our next outing and there we were, a lovely sunny day and looking across the Laguna and surrounding reed beds, trees and fields just behind us so that we could see plenty of activity.
So eager to get going out with the scope, camera, bins and go on our way, we stopped several times on the way to the hide and scanned the area. It was a very rewarding day with a good variety  of birds and we were fortunate enough to get good clear views of most of them.
