Birding around Velez-Malaga: Las Campiñuelas (Costa del Sol, Malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

Another great birding day with Quirri at Las Campiñuelas , a wonderful place where environmental regulations have to be urgently enforced against so many undesirables making the rules there.

Have a look at some more pictures and the complete list of 38 species observed!

Despite some migrant species have not arrived to Las Campiñuelas yet, the morning was livened up by lots of Woodchat Shrikes, Spotted Flycatchers (including a leucism identified by Quirri last year and that has come back to the same area, having been named “Quirrii”) and specially migrant warblers like Orphean and Garden ones and Whitethroat.

You can also live these experiences with us !!!
