Serin (Male)
  The holiday has flown by, still haven't got photos of some of the most wanted birds. Oh well means i have to come back to the Pyrenees at least! While my parents were getting packed up, and sorting out some other bits, i had a last wander around the village tracks. No sign of Crested Tits in the park, but had a few decent bits along the lane near the apartment. Rock Sparrow, Nightingale, Serin, Cirl Bunting and a mobile Western Bonellis Warbler, along with a Wryneck calling there.

   From there we had about an hour to spare. I decided to give san Juan de la Pena another chance, especially for Crested Tit for Dad. Within no time i had found 1 or 2, but now the hard part, getting Dad onto one. Fnally one flew to a big fir, it then decided to come out and sit on the end of a branch, NO CAMERA!!!! Bugger.

   Oh well, then the drive back to Madrid and the journey home. Decent holiday, only really missed a few of the main aims. Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Wallcreeper, Alpine Accentor, Snowfich and sightings of Black Woodpecker were probably the main misses. Next time i will get them…..
