Wednesday 4th April 2012

Cabo de Palos lighthouse garden
Weather: Sky cloud 6/8, no wind, temp. 12ºC.  08:20 – 09:20.

Very hopeful this morning for a fall of birds, as conditions seem perfect, showers during the night, overcast dawn with no wind – and although I had my camera with me, I managed to leave the battery in the charger at home!
However, the only birds of note were 11 Willow/Chiffs, and 6 Subalpine Warblers.
