I tried to make the most of it there and decided to drive around in search of whatever February could offer.
The beach was a desolate place as the cool wind skipped off the sand with just a Little Egret and a Sanderling there dancing along the shore as the sea lapped against the rocks.
Skirting round the edges of the agricultural fields, a group of Purple-Swamphen were present, and nearby, an impressive flock of around 250 Glossy Ibis took flight as I attempted to quietly creep up for a closer look. Also there were a few Green Sandpiper, and a single Wood Sandpiper that was frustratingly flighty.
The inlet at El Garxel held a few interesting birds including a gathering of Mediterranean Gull, Greater Flamingo, a couple of Whiskered Tern, and a Dartford Warbler on the walk up to the viewing screens.
A fluffy first-year Black Redstart was picking off insects along the edge of the estuary.
