Gathering of the Stone Curlews
The CIM Hide in the centre of the Albufera reserve was the place to be on an early August evening.
Stone Curlew numbers rose during the month from a couple of birds to an amazing 75+ by mid-month.
According to a local birder, a gathering of more than a hundred birds is not unusual at this time of
year. The birds were scattered across the marsh in front of the hide, calling, feeding, drinking and  
bathing. An impressive sight!
Stone Curlews everywhere!
