La Barrosa, nr Cadíz, Alicante, Spain

 A turnstone surveying the scene
Took a brief afternoon stroll around a section of La Barrosa - an extensive and protected salt marsh. The weather was pretty dull, windy with squally rain at times - hardly what you would expected from southern Spain!
 3rd cycle Lesser Black-back
Aside from an array of waders like Common Redshank, Grey Plover, Kentish Plover and Black-winged Stilt, I also managed to glimpse a Yellow Wagtail of the Iberian blue-headed race. An early migrant.
