Bird watching at the Mouth of the Guadalhorce (Costa del Sol, Malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

The reserve already shows some symptoms of migration!

Have a look at the pictures and the complete list of 44 species observed!

The observation of a Sand Martin and a Great Crested Grebe, and the coming back of some Audouin’s and Mediterranean Gulls and a few Redshanks, tell us that something will happen from now on...

We had great views of a juvenile Little Bittern at the Laguna Escondida.

You can also live these experiences with us !!!
