Spain: Flamingos and friends

Any visiting bird watcher to the Alicante region can visit some fantastic Salt pans and Wetland reserves that in some way make-up for the relentless urbanisations that stretch from Alicante to Murcia on the coastal strip. At the salt pans, the birds seem much more approachable than in the UK - making for fantastic opportunities for photography, you just need time which sadly I didn't have enough of. Heres a few of the commoner stuff I snapped. The Costa Blanca bird club web site has all you need to know for visitor information and latest sightings.
