A short get-away after a busy summer at home, primarily to attend a couple of whale-and-dolphin watching tours in the strait. Of course, I had a couple of bird targets to look out for too. Generally speaking, Spain seldom disappoints and this is even more true for Andalucía, even though August might not be the best month for songbirds. Being relatively close to home, where all birds are familiar, time also permits searching for other life forms as well… The first 6 photos represent some of the most interesting species on the trip. The rest are uploaded chronologically.
