The 4th Tarsiger cyanurus for Spain has been seen and photographed this morning at Clot de Galvany, Elx, Alicante (J.A.Ramos). The other 3 previous records all were from late autumn and even winter, being the 3rd a still non-homologated record of a bird ringed this year in Huelva.

Today’s bird might be twitchable and directions in Spanish as well as four photos are included in Rare Birds in Spain website both in homepage and December news section which includes a twitter apple to follow as soon as known the latest inter-html updates news.

Interestingly, the same area, Alicante, is holding FIVE overwintering Greater Spotted Eagles, at least one with a satellite transmitter and coming (for another consecutive winter) to the area from Estonia. As that is an area holding many tourist visitors in this part of the year it might be of interest for the overall European audience.
