This was a short holiday in the beautiful Coto Doñana National Park in Andalucia. We were based in the unusual town of El Rocío which, with its sand streets and horseriders, seems like Mexico. It was a guided birdwatching tour, hence the large number of birds identified, some of which were new to us.
