Hi Maties and Cati, I am in England but I fly back tomorrow, so I could not be at Betlem/Es Calo until Thursday, if that is any help?

Regards, Clive

Spotless Starling (Sturnus unicolor) has been observed on 6th June breeding at Port de Pollenca - 2 birds seen from the Albufereta track next to the restaurant Ca'n Cuarassa on the Port de Pollenca coast road, taking food to a nest site under roof tiles.

Also with Philip Garnett and Mike Montier on 9th June at Albufera we saw a distant raptor that we could not identify, but after consulting his reference books, Philip is almost convinced that it was a Lesser Spotted Eagle (Aquila pomarina).  It would be interesting if another record is made of this species.

Salut, Clive Griffin.

I have seen a dark morph Eleonora's Falcon on 16th March, flying from Colonia de Sant Pere towards Betlem.
An early sighting, I think?

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the welcome.

I am also interested in knowing your sites in Arta for Hawfinch as this is local to my home. It is a bird that has always eluded me.

Regards,

Clive.

Hi Maties,

thanks for your precise information. Your english is near perfect, it makes me ashamed that I still am struggling with castillano, I haven't started with catalan yet!

Mortitx is interesting - I hope to go there soon. I look forward to your report if you see Hawfinch there.

Regards,

Clive.

Hi Maties,

did I meet you recently at Colonia de Sant Pere, looking for the Snow Bunting (Plectrophenax nivalis)?

I am sorry I cannot read Catalan, But I understand you have seen 2 Hawfinch (C. coccothraustes) at Llubi?
I have never seen this bird, so would be interested in some more details about the location.

Regards,

Clive Griffin.
