In mid-June 2019, the Natural Process Monitoring Team observed in the Doñana Natural Area, specifically in Marisma de Hinojos, a specimen of Cream-coloured courser (Cursorius cursor). This wader is distributed in North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and the Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, where it lives in desert and sub-desert environments. In our country, its main population is in the Canary Islands, specifically in its eastern islands. On the contrary, in peninsular Spain and the Balearic Islands it is considered a rare bird, although there are breeding appointments in Almería, Albacete and, recently, also in Granada. During the winter of the 2000/2001 season a Cream-coloured courser (Cursorius cursor) specimen was observed repeatedly in Doñana. The natural origin of the specimens detected in Doñana is not certain, but it is not disposable either, so a future increase in the presence of this species in the entire southern peninsula could be another indicator of its progressive desertification.
