I have just joined these forums and would like to say hi to everyone. I live in Alicante province, Spain, and am a birdwatching guide. We have a lot of interesting places to go birding here and some great species. In the area we have Great and Little Bustard, Black-Bellied and Pin Tailed Sandgrouse, Purple Gallinule, Marbled Duck, White Headed Duck...... Oh I could go on, but I guess you get the idea. Currently we have a Greater Spotted Eagle present in the area that has been tagged and comes from Estonia. Birding here is great as the weather is usually very good and the light is fantastic. Come on, all you keen birders. Come to the sunny Costa Blanca for your next birding trip.
