Walking with flamingos 🦩


A misty start to the day but it soon cleared and we enjoyed a very warm and sunny afternoon. Taking advantage of this we decided to head for the salt marshes to say a farewell to the flamingos that winter here.



It's a beautiful place with thousands of flamingos and assorted other waders.

We once again pretty much had the place to ourselves as we walked out into the marshlands.




The area is ideally suited to Flamingos as they can wander about scooping up their food from the shallow waters.

Historicaly and to a lesser extent today the salt harvesting where the sea water is gradually reduced leaving salt is a big part of the area's commerce.



The nature reserve includes this pine forest and was a welcome break from the sun for the dog. He is certainly an animal that doesn't like extremes. After his soaking and near hypothermia of yesterday to the sun of today he is a dog struggling to acclimate.



We are slowly getting ready to leave on Friday. We have the car for one more day and will be dropping it off into Cádiz tomorrow evening.





We had a great night out last night with Donna and Mick. Walking around the old town a meal and a couple of drinks. They are alll packed up and leaving tomorrow.
