Extremadura & Gredos Mountains 2011

A tremendous tour was enhanced by superb weather, picturesque scenery, some fantastic bird 
sightings and a lovely group of people. 
Birding highlights included: Over 100 vultures, of 3 species, in the sky at once over Monfrague, 
a family party of Penduline Tits feeding on reed-mace, Lesser-spotted Woodpeckers at their 
nest hole feeding young, all 5 eagle species with great views of Spanish Imperial, Bonelli’s and 
Golden Eagles, over 40 Rollers and daily views of Hoopoe. We had a magical day out in the 
Gredos Mountains where Rock Thrush showed very well, the Ortolan Buntings allowed close 
approach and the magnificent Bluethroat performed superbly.
