Fantastic amount of birdlife and others despite being directly under the flight path for the airport and planes so low you feel like you're ducking every couple of minutes!!
Not reachable by public transport. We went on our last day, headed to the airport early and hired a car for the day from there. It's only about 15minutes from the airport (unless you get lost like us and eventually called into a local hotel who gave us a local map and directions!) though isn't signposted until you are nearly there. Only had about 4 hours there in total and so only visited one site but ion the map there was another section at the otherside of the airport.

KO1 said:I wasn't sure if the sandy coloured bird was a Squacco heron??
Yes indeed, it's a Squacco,.nice looking birds with their sandy plumage. Funny thing is when they fly they look white.
