|Queen of Spain Fritillary|
Lots of Vultures flying around, but none looked like Lammergeier, another reason to come here. Short-toed Eagle and Egyptian Vultures. When we got to the top of the valley, there were little flocks of Linnets, some Stonechats, a Cirl Bunting with some Yellowhammers and a Red-backed Shrike. Also a Dipper flew along the stream there.
Did manage a lifer, but not a Bird, a Mammal! Pyrennean Chamois (i think anyway). Lots of flowers, some nice new Orchids, Elderflower Orchid (both the common Yellow and rarer Red variant).
Before returning home, we visited the Gabardito Refuge, to see if we could find Citril Finch. Yes we did, but they were very flighty……will keep trying. There seems to be a theme there doesnt there?
