It was hot enough for the horses to be sheltering under the shade of a tree, with a Cattle Egret as company and to take care of any bugs that might be bothering them.

As I made my way down an embankment to try and get onto one of the islands - the water level is low enough at the moment - I suddenly came face to face with this Snipe by the water's edge.

Decided to stop off at Guadalmar on the way back from Málaga airport, it is just great to see a half-decent expanse of water for a change. And teeming with wildlife.

This is Albizia julibrissin, variously known as Mimosa, Persian Silk tree or Pink Silk tree, although it is not a particularly close relative of the Mimosa family. Several species of Acacia are also generally referred to as 'Mimosa'.

The rio Chillar is drier than a dry bone at the moment, the only exception being the unfortunate sewage on the banks where the unscrupulous have connected their outlets to the stormwater drains.

It wasn't too long before I came across the first 'hide', a welcome bit of shelter from the searing heat and a welcome chance to sit and guzzle some water.

The water levels in the lagoons at Guadalmar are quite low at the moment after an exceptionally hot, and very dry, summer, but still adequate to support the wildlife. There is apparently much less activity than during winter and spring, as one might…

I was watching a group of Heron on a small, distant island when I spotted something quite large, and white in the undergrowth. It must have been about 150 to 200 metres away, quite still and very difficult to determine exactly what it was.

The rio Chillar is still as dry as a bone, very little activity along the margins apart from the odd Dragonfly, a few Spotted Flycatchers and the occasional Sardinian Warbler.

This is my favourite snap of the day, a young Spotted Flycatcher eager to fill his belly. Quite pleased with this one.

Next up, on one of the small islands, was a pair of Hoopoe, Upupa epops, with their extremely distinctive crests.

I wasn't sure what to expect on my first trip to the Parque Natural Desembocadura del Guadalhorce, so everything was a nice surprise. For a change I am going to try and cover things in order.
