I have been away

Hi folks, sorry for the lack of posts but I have been in Tenerife for eight days, it is the only chance my wife gets for anything like a normal holiday! I still managed to take my small binoculars with me – not that there was much in the way of birds. The apartment is situated between Los Christianos and Playa de la Americanas, concrete jungle would be an apt description. However, I did see a few species, with Whimbrel, Grey Plover, Turnstone, Dunlin and Ringed Plover representing the waders. African Blue Tit, Monk Parakeet, Little Egret, Grey Heron, Kestrel, Spanish Sparrow, Spectacled Warbler, Blackcap and Canary Island Chiffchaff.

I doesn’t seem like there has been much around although the Smew was seen a couple of times after it was first reported. I will get over at the weekend then I should be getting a little bit more back to normal after that.
