EL Caminito del Rey..Malaga, Spain.

A fantastic trip to see the Griffon vulture's at the "Caminito del rey" a narrow gorge in El Chorro, Ardales in the province of Málaga.

What a awesome bird, I counted a dozen in one spot ... Also: A pair of Chough which was a lovely bonus.

Little Grebe

Yesterday afternoon 14:30 while running past the small pond in Cuerden Valley at the bottom of Factory lane "pass cheeky monkey's play centre" I saw a LITTLE GREBE diving... It's been a couple of years since I’ve seen that bird there.

A nice surprise...

Hi Neil,

Has there been any records of Cuckoos in this area before?

It could be the one that was seen on Buckshaw !!
