It would appear that we are starting to be visited by a number of migrants here in La Mancha. It´s a great time of the year to see some birds you wouldn´t normally see, such as this lovely Wood Sandpiper as seen at the Laguna de Navaseca in Daimiel.
Star of the show though I think is this rarity for these parts has to be the Ruddy Shelduck which arrived and is keeping company with a group of Common Shelducks, again at Navaseca. Thanks to unpaseomanchegos blog for bringing this to general attention.
I´m really looking forward to seeing what other surprises appear on their stopovers from their long travels.
