This was the second week of two back-to-back trips to the same area. The weather was superb throughout, perhaps a little too hot at times especially down on the plains of Extremadura. We had a wonderful time and saw all the specialties of the region which included: Great & Little Bustard,
Savi’s Warbler, Spanish imperial Eagle, White-rumped Swift, Black Vulture, Black Stork, Great-spotted Cuckoo, Stone Curlew, Montagu’s Harrier & Golden Eagle,
It was also nice to see Hobby, Honey Buzzard, Rock Thrush, Bluethroat, Citril Finch, Ortolan Bunting, Water Pipit, Rock Sparrow, Rock Bunting, Crossbill, Firecrest, European Nightjar, Red-backed Shrike, Bonelli’s Warbler and Pied Flycatchers all on their breeding grounds in the Sierra de Gredos. We saw 160 species, which is a good record for this trip.
