Spring migration!

Africa migrants have started to appear in the Algarve and will do so increasingly from mid March onwards, with most of the trans-Sahara migrants returning. I spent two days visiting the marvellous Coto Doñana Natural Park in Andalusia, Spain - only an about two hours drive from Faro this week. One of the photos that turned out well is this adult Short-toed Eagle, which must have returned from his wintering areas in Africa recently.
