Hidden Pools of Sanlucar

Getting lost in Sanlucar is not exactly difficult. In fact we were to take the wrong turn on more than one occasion during this trip and nearly every time it brought us to some great wildlife. In this case a pair of pools either side of the road on the northern outskirts not far from Algaida provided us with very close views of Purple Gallinule (Porphyrio porphyrio), Little Bitterns (Ixobrychus minutus) and a Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax).
