Birding Axarquia

This is the Birding website of Bob Wright

Red Avadavat

Bob Wright lives with his wife, Jenny on the mountain top of El Tinao overlooking Torre del Mar and the sea to the south and Lake Vinuela and the mountains to the north.  The surrounding hills are alive with birds throughout the year; Autumn through Spring sees the resident Kestrels, Thekla Larks, Stonechats, Blue Rock Thrushes,  Sardinian Warblers, Serins and Goldfinches joined by visiting White Wagtails and Chiffchaffs whilst Summer brings Bee-eaters, Swifts (including some Pallid Swifts), both Barn and Red-rumped Swallows and, of course, our magnificent Short-toed Eagles.  Whilst mainly quiet for the Spring migration, Autumn usually brings large movements of raptors; mainly Griffon Vultures and Honey Buzzards but also smaller numbers of Booted Eagles and Black Kites.

An account of the regular visits to neighbouring sites in both the Axarquia and local birding venues, such as the old river at the Guadalhorce in Malaga, the old railway track above the Ventas de Zafarray, the small pool (pantaneta) at Alhama de Granada and the Charca de Suarez and neighbouring marshes in Motril, is published on the Birding Axarquia blog which can be accessed directly from Page 3.
