Birding-wise our target was Balearic Warbler and again we were surprised how easy it was. We found a song-flighting male by the track up to the Talaia de Albercutx. The viewpoint here was also productive with a showy pair of Blue Rock Thrush, 2+ Crag Martins, a Booted Eagle and 3 Balearic Shearwaters offshore.
Working our way towards the lighthouse gave us several brookei Peregrines and a few Crossbills. The light house itself was actually quite quiet with just a couple of Crag Martins, though around the beach there were a lot of confiding Firecrests, and a Audouin's Gull flew along the beach - a welcome first for the trip though we were left wanting better views.
Next blog post will be about birding around Albufereta...
