The Pyrenees, Zaragoza & Picos de Europa - JUNE 2017

It was another very successful Tour of these three unique and contrasting areas, the scenery was stunning, the birds were amazing and the group was fantastic, we all gelled well and everyone enjoyed the trip. If anything, the weather was too good, the Zaragoza Plains were boiling, the Pyrenees foothills were sweltering and even up on the high plateau in the Picos it was very hot. Nevertheless, we saw all of the most wanted specialities: Lammergeier, Wallcreeper, Citril Finch, Rock Thrush, Ring Ouzel, Alpine Cough, Alpine Accentor, Snowfinch, Black Woodpecker and many of the supporting cast.
