Sunday 28th October. We decided to go and see if the Little Bunting was still present with friends at the park in La Linea. It wasn’t long before our friend, Alex Colorado, spotted an Olive-backed Pipit, then amazingly, while taking Photos we realised there were two birds. What an experience and October is proving good value for rarities, bring them on! Olive-backed Pipit normally winters in south Asia, so yet another bird well off course, but we won’t complain.
