Kentish plovers and sanderlings in Portugal

Tuesday 10 April.

After yesterday, again in Tavira, Portugal. A poster announces the May Day celebration by the CGTP, the trade union federation in Portugal,

Today, the ferry to Tavira island.

This video is on Tavira island.

A crested lark sings.

On the Atlantic ocean beach, barn swallows flying.

Gulls’ tracks.

Also, much smaller, sanderlings’ tracks.

A bit later, sanderlings themselves, three of them running along the floodline. Later, seven sanderlings.

A lesser black-backed gull flying.

Kentish plovers on the beach.

On the river mouth jetty, three great cormorants; two of them drying their wings by spreading them.
