|Nuthatch Trepador Azul (Sitta europaea)|
|Spot the Short-toed Treecreeper Agateador Comun (Certhia brachydactyla)|
Walking to the top car park I could hear, what seemed, no end of Nuthatches calling in the trees around me and then locked on to the first of many. Indeed, later individuals were so close I had to radically adjust the lens to even get them into focus! Perhaps, unwittingly, I was standing close to their nesting site as certainly the male was both, it seemed, singing and calling at the same time.
|Crossbill Piquituerto Comun (Loxia curvirostra)|
The return journey delivered a Great Tit and then more Barn Swallows and House Martins as I made my way back towards Lake Vinuela. Climbing up to Los Romanes, more of the same plus a few Red-rumped Swallows and Spotless Starlings to be followed by Thekla Lark and Stonechat on the track to Casa Collado.
