Delta del Llobregat 13/10/2012

Last saturday my dad took me to the Remolar-Filipines.

It wasn't a very good day except for an Osprey.
At the Riera the usual Little Grebes and Grey Herons were present.
We didn't see much at the Maresma hide, except for a Green Sandpiper, some Ducks and the Marsh Harrier.
On the way to the Pollancres hide I saw a Song Thrush, and , once there a Night Heron and a Kingfisher. At the Pollancres Hide was where I saw the Osprey and a Marsh Harrier attacking a Common Buzzard.
Finally at the beach, from the observation tower I could see some Sandwich Terns and a Shag.

This weekend I'm doing a one day trip to the Delta del Ebro and the next one I'm going to a Pelagic from Tarragona.
