We return to the delta in late April to find it drained. This is for us, a quick stop as we are en route home to France. Spring is in the air with abundant Swallows on the wing,
 this cheeky chappie was just posing for us.

Below are some of the pictures, taken on our day out.

This Barn Swallow was snapped at Bassa de la Platjola.

On the dry paddies, close to l’Encanyissada, a Squacco Heron stands as if transfixed.

At La Tancada lagoon we have some great views of Garganey on their migration back from Africa.

We also saw  Caspian Terns and many Purple Herons (no photos) but we did catch a
 skulking Little Bittern.

So we bid a fond farewell to the Ebro Delta, we will return in the fall. We are now homeward  bound!
