Andalucia September 2009

We met in Ronda at the Hotel San Gabriel on a bright Sunday morning, a hazy sky produced a weakened 
sun with very little breeze which made for very good birding weather. 
The Serrania de Ronda is an area of mountainous beauty clothed with lush Mediterranean vegetation that
surrounds the ancient town of Ronda, our particular destination this morning amidst this vast wilderness 
was the tracks and trails of the Sierra de las Nieves (parque natural). This is a huge area of oak forest, pine 
woods, open scrubland, river gorges and high mountains of bare karstic rock. Large rounded grey 
mountains tops could be seen in every direction and you could imagine it to be a very desolate place in the 
middle of winter.
