The Pyrenees, Zaragoza & Picos de Europa - JUNE 2013

After last night's rain we awoke to a lovely clear blue sky. With bags packed we were ready to move at 7:30am, 
and so our tour began. Birds seen as we passed through the suburbs of Madrid included: Common & Pallid 
Swifts, White Stork, Spotless Starling, Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove and House Sparrow.
We made good time. After a breakfast stop, then another stop to buy our picnic lunch and then a third stop to eat it 
(which produced Greenfinch, Cirl Bunting, Chaffinch and Turtle Dove), we arrived at our first scheduled stop 
some 15kms east of Belchite at the side of a river. During a 30 min stop we found: Black Redstart, Spotted 
Flycatcher, Griffon Vulture, Serin, Goldfinch, Great Tit and lots of House Sparrows.
