Spring gave way to summer and when early September arrived Dennis Horwood and I decided to go to
The resort of Matalascanas on the Costa de la Luz and as it happened right next to the Coto Donana.
We flew to Seville,then on arrival I checked out the local scrub for birds.
Our first bird "Alectoris" I replied was Red legged Partridge,the Coto has so many diverse habitats,and as we drove through the Marismas we soon noted mammals in abundance,wild boar
As we rolled over the dunes,the land rover struggled with the gradients,we alighted to photograph
Moving back to the Marismas we failed to find Pin tailed Sandgouse,but were lucky to see Imperial
Eagle,this large Aquila bird with white epaulettes is of the sub species Aldaberti.
The day ended as we raced along the Atlantic beach passing the Martello towers,gulls and terns
panicked in profusion as their white shapes clashed with the majestic breakers.
