I received a great deal of help from John
Hallowell, Wildlife tours in rural Spain,
you can contact him at
email@example.com tel: (+34 636 03 14 72. John is a
natural enthusiast and a great birder he makes his clients welcome and
treats them to a great culinary experience.
There are about 2,500 Great Bustard at Villafafilia
I managed, with the help of Pierre a new friend and great naturalist, to
see about 160 we got fairly close but the light was bad. The next day
the tracks were impassable. We managed to photograph Gull-billed Tern,
Lesser Kestrel, Bee-eaters and Booted Eagle.
Went a sort distance got photo of Bonelli's
Warbler. Golden Oriel sang most of the day, Bee-eaters kept me
amused while Sub-alpine Warbler were flitting about.
Saw my first Wolf, for a few seconds it sniffed the
air (probably my curry) then it disappeared back into the forest.
Cough & Cold got worse kept warm and did some
