KIMCOMANIA

February 2010 was very sunny and dry but bitterly cold, frequently below zero and with a biting east wind. The birding, for these reasons, was not very good, too early for rarities and because of the wind, bird sightings were rather infrequent. The Spoonbills however were superb at Suscinio, with a large flock there of around 16.
