During 19 – 26 March we spent a week on Fuerteventura, the third year in succession we have visited this island. On the 21 March I spent an afternoon with my good friend Alan Conlin and his wife, who, just by coincidence, happened to be staying at the northern end of Fuerteventura, birding the Tindaya Plain. 

One of my target birds and one I’ve never seen on the island was Cream-coloured Courser, and I was also keen to see Houbara Bustard again. Well, we had a great few hours birding, basically cleaning up on the target species. Several Cream-coloured Courser, a male Houbara Bustard, 14 stunning Black-bellied Sandgrouse, small flocks of Trumpeter Finch, several Berthelot’s Pipit and Mediterranean Short-toed Lark.

One morning two Hoopoe performed in the garden of the Hotel and also 2 Plain Swift and 2 Ruddy Shelduck as flyovers. An enjoyable few days away in warm spring sunshine……
