New trip in region of Bricia

Again in the region of Bricia and again searching Lesser Kestrels and again without find any.
Even so a good day of birdwatching with 44 species, and a good number of birds, we saw flocks of House Martins and smaller flocks of Barn Swallows and Common Swift, all of them in active migration towards Africa.
In the water reservoir of the river Ebro, at the beginning of the migration, little numbers of birds.
But, some interesting records, Purple Heron a juvenile bird, Ruddy Shelduck and the first little flocks of Black-necked Grebe
