Clayheads on Tour - Algarve 2010 27th July (3)

We were nearing the end of this unforgetable birding day. We stopped again and saw two Great Bustards with good views of four in flight.

We our last stop at a pool near Rolau. We estimated about 100 Cattle Egrets here, plus another 80 nearby. We also had three Short-toed Larks.

So that was the end of our day. Georg, our guide, had navigated us around the plains and the East Algarve and had produced the goods - who can complain at an immature Ruppells Vulture and three White-rumped Swifts! plus Rufous Bush-chat, Bonelli's Warbler, Calandra Lark, Booted and Short-toed Eagles, Subalpine Warbler...the list goes on. You can get in touch with Georg via his blog
