The 7th september we had to go into the Riet Vell lagoon and cut the upper parts of the Typha angustifolia. If it isn't cut, this plant's seeds fly to the nearby ecological rice fields and completely cover them.
I had been at the hide that morning seeing the usual herons and waders.

As we entered the lagoon, all the ducks, Flamingos and other birds took off so we worked alone, only finding sometimes a dead duck (Teals or Shelducks) and three nests which whe still don't know what they are.

In the afternoon I spent some time at the observatory (Ruffs, Little Bittern, Kingfisher, Glossy Ibis...) and aproximately at 6:30 we made a short trip to the Punta de la Banya with nice waders (Kentish Plover, Grey Plover, Sanderling...) and gulls/terns (Audouins Gull, Sandwich Tern...).

The pictures are from the sunset over the salinas, but if you look close over the horizon (right side of the pic) you'll see a large group of gulls.
