Bird list for Zahora + Oct/Nov 2015

We stayed on the coast in a small village called Zahora, it is in the Cadiz province of Andalucía on what is aptly named the Costa de luz. This was not a birding holiday, in that I was not out and about all the time visiting know birding sites and ticking off species as fast as I could. much of the time was spent close to where we were staying and even on days out it was more of a tourist trip than a bird trip.

None the less I do keep my eyes open and do record what I see, so here is the list with a few photos. (H beside the name means seen from the house, B is seen along the beach, T is travelling around Cadiz province,)
