Still Chillin in Spain.....!
Drove higher up the Hecho Valley at 6.30am and got to see a Black Woodpecker flying overhead several times, along with some nice looks at Crested Tit, Serin, Red Crossbill and a few other goodies. After breakfast drove down to the river and spent a leisurely morning’s birding seeing Rock Sparrow, Eurasian Golden Oriole, several Garden Warblers and even scoped a fine Eurasian Wryneck. Had our picnic lunch in the shade beside the cool river before driving for coffee in Berdun and then checking out a little site I know that didn’t really reveal anything new apart from an odd Marbled White. So we headed back up the valley and stopped for ice cream before getting back to the hotel at 4.45pm for a nice rest and cold beer!
