Mallorca - Birding around Albufereta...

On the morning of day four we decided to have a short look at Albufereta, stopping at the pull in to C'an Cuarrassa on the way.

From the pull in, we were able to look back towards a large hotel and managed to pick up 5+ Spotless Starlings on the roof. Other birds around the small reserve here included a couple of Whinchats and iberiae Yellow Wagtails and our only Meadow Pipit of the trip.

At Albufereta itself a really nice selection of birds included 4 Stone Curlews sat on an island, a Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Purple Swamphen and 2 more Spotless Starlings sat right alongside a Common Starling. We also got our best views of Booted Eagle of the trip and also had three more flyover Audouin's Gulls.
