Lovely pictures Tony.  At this rate our salinas will be giving the Cabo do Gata a run for its money.  The egrets look a bit put out though!
Happy owners and winter residents at Vera Playa, our piece of Naturist Paradise.

For those interested the small flock of about 20 Flamingos are happily settled on the salinas...  and can be seen from the road and pathways

  Is this opposite Consum? And am I likely to see them in May or June?
