    Some really amazing photos there, Philip!

    What a wonderful time you must have had!

    The Stonechat, Avocets and Storks were easy to ID, and I think you have been lucky enough to capture a Grey Shrike in several of the pics, but, although I think I can name most of the birds, I would appreciate if you had time to list them - just in case!

    When are you going back then?

    I was hoping that you all would be able to confirm identification as have not had time to do so yet!
    I had a great time Cycling 12 miles of coast for 4 days with an Aussi Bloke i met at the Hostel.
    if you point on a Picture it should give a Title as to what i think they are.

    Damn, typed a long reply to this thread earlier and got sidetracked, then closed the browser.

    Anyway, nice shots Philip, looks like a wonderful selection of birds there. The Martin is a Swallow by the way, the Lark is a Crested Lark as far as I can see, will have to have a good look at the others later.

    Didn't guess the Stilts - but I should have!

    I THOUGHT that pic might have been Flamingoes, but they were too far away to make out!

    I also thought the Ibis may have been a Spoonbill, but am not sure about the Redshank-type wader. Maybe Rolf will know that one though?
