Many presaharian birds

The Bluethroat arrived in l'Aiguamoll de la Bòbila on 17-09-2012. Today I saw it again!, in the same place, just in front of the hide.

I saw 6 Common Linnets (Carduelis cannabina) and 31 Goldfinches (Carduelis carduelis), the firsts finch groups. Also, with 3 Willow Warblers (Phylloscopus trochilus), I saw 1 Common Chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita), the first of the season. Presaharian birds are arriving... just when some transaharian birds are still here. It's a good moment to see species diversity and practise the ID, just like today, when I saw the collybita at the same time I saw some trochilus.

A Common Swift (Apus apus) was another interesting sighting, probably it's the last I could see this year.
