Spanish BELTED KINGFISHER relocated

Just received news of the relocation yesterday and this morning of the BELTED KINGFISHER (Ceryle alcyon) seen from November-December 2009 at Mar Menor, Murcia, Spain. The bird has moved 15.39 km to the East into an area of irrigating ponds, where fishing seems more favourable in terms of cost/benefit according to local observers. Thanks to Antonio Jesús Hernández, a full set of directions, maps, including a Google Earth placemark for those interested in having a look to the area from home, plus a photograph from today are already available in Rare Birds in Spain website http://www.rarebirdspain.net either at news page (including also the summaryof latest sightings in the country in systematic order) or the special photopage from November 2009 updated with the new information.
