A quick trip up the mountain today, gave us Lesser Kestrel, Stonechats feeding young, eight Black Wheatears, three Black-eared Wheatears, Rock Buntings, Black Redstarts, Jackdaws, House Martins, Woodchat Shrike, Mistle Thrush, Blackbird, Greenfinch, Chough, Sardinian Warbler, and a pair of Spectacled Warblers (photo attached).
A good spread of birds here so, all being well, we may see the same when we travel up the Sierra Loja this Friday. Plus, of course, it would be good to confirm that the Rock Thrushes have returned and, maybe if we are lucky, even the nesting Eagle Owl might put in a brief appearance along with Northern Wheatears and Red-legged Partridges and Azure-winged Magpies. We will see!.
