Ebro Delta, Spain, 23rd - 26th April, 2014

Day, 2        25th April

We are at the Punta de la Banya at just after dawn !

Any repeat of yesterday is completely out the window !

The wind is blowing, fairly constant, into our face, waves breaking on the bay,
A few Slender-bill distant, always facing away !
No photography this morning !

Move on !  We leave the Delta and head for Els Ports de Beseit, Tortosa, then took the road up Mont Cara.

Very scenic but very few birds !
