Four Plovers from Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is a queer place, well Maspalomas especially. The resort is situated right next to the Dunes that incorporates a nature reserve. A fresh water lake lies within he reserve and is adjacent to the Hotels etc, so if you wanted to take the wife on holiday you can leave her on the sunbed and sneak off every so often to satisfy the need to twitch. Although my advice is to take her with you as there is a nudists area within the dunes. To be seen there with the bins and camera on your own might cause a stir. All joking aside, you do get a fair amount of passage migrants there as it is on the route down south with a fresh water body close to the coast.

  1. Makes me happy to know that you are in my country. If you wish see a different and spectacular place in Canary Island: National Park Timanfaya in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura
