Sunday, 26th February 2012 – Salinas de Rasall, Calblanque

Weather: Sky 2/8 cloud, wind SW F1-2, temp. 18ºC. 12:30 to 13:30.
The 'salinas de Rasall' is another disused salinas which is being improved, and is a very popular waypoint for migrating adult Audouin’s Gulls, that roost on the walls of the lagoons. I normally stop there to read the coloured rings that I see on the gulls. I counted 437 Audouins Gulls in total, and managed to read 26 rings. The only other birds seen of note was a small flock of 5 Lapwings that flew over heading east.
