crap birder returns from Spain

Hola! Just back from two weeks in Spain, some birding, some partying and some culture (...anyone that knows me now will be gasping for air...Ipin....culture...shurely shum's true though I tell ya) and lots of fun..and some sun! some piccies to follow when I get a moment to catch up.

IF has pointed out, quite rightly, that the RTD I had on the pool during my WeBS count was actually a Black-throated Diver, see comments box in that post for my lame excuses and thus an explanantion of the title of this post.

BTD would be a year tick, but as I didn't properly ID it at the time, I won't count it..that'll teach me to take care more care next time!! Crap Birder indeed - this satement will not shock anyone who knows me though!

Hopefully will get down to the Pools tomorrow, if not defo Sunday..

You see, you've gone and made me ponder another trip to Spain now.

Been the last 3 years and this year I decided not to until now...clucking bell.

Any lifers?

You see what you did - just booked for a week in SW Spain for mid September.

The townhouse we stopped in last year backed onto the the Jimena Corkwoods so I'm hopeful for raptor migration while slurping Rioja by the pool.
