Spanish Pyrenees

So we flew from Bristol and East Midlands Airports on the short flight to Barcelona, met up and drove to the Hecho Valley in the Spanish Pyrenees. Along the way we saw many European Bee-eaters, White Storks on nests and a brief Eurasian Golden Oriole before reaching our base of the Hecho Valley. Here an Ortolan Bunting was seen amongst many Corn Buntings, a pair of Tawny Pipits were on the road in front of us and we had our first taste of the stunning array of butterflies on offer with Dusky Heath and Spanish Gatekeeper being noteworthy. It was just a short drive to he excellent Hotel Uson, situated high up the scenic Hecho Valley and our home for the next 6 nights.

Here's a couple photos of the view from my bedroom window.....

Not a bad view from our hotel room....!
