Birds in Portugal 5

Towards the end of the day, at the south side of the estuary we saw this special bird,
the Squacco Heron. It looked for a while as though we were going to miss out on it, but we did get lucky after all

It was in that farm area and I looked for Cattle Egret doing their thing like riding a cow...

...but all I got was one on a horse...

Below 2 Iberian Grey Shrikes.

 There was a Woodchat Shrike as well. Unfortunately I didn't get a good picture.

And that was the end of a long birding day with thanks to local guide Helder

Bye bye
