National Park “El Fondo”

Near Elche we discovered the lagunes of “El Fondo” or “El Hondo” – one name seams to be Valenciano ūüėČ

White spotted Bluethroat

The parking at this National Park is big and can be used to stay overnight: 38.187893, -0.791316

We took the long lenses out and went bird hunting.

Pentax K1 – 500mm – f8,0
Pentax K1 – 28mm – f2,8
There are observation points and different paths leading through the area.

Beside
of common ducks we saw one Flamingo in the distance, one little bird
which looked interesting (first picture) and a bird of prey which we couldn’t
identify (below).

Kestrel or Cernícalo (span.)



I think I don’t have to tell you that we have no
knowledge at all about birds. So if you can tell us which birds these
are, we would be happy if you let us know.
Mallard or Pato Real (span.)

Coot
happy to hike
We managed to take a long route and walked for more than 3 hours.
