Wednesday 07 July, El Colmenar (Estacion de Gaucin), 0730-1100, partly cloudy and humid. A walk along the Guadiaro river, accompanied by Wingspanner, towards the 'Vulture Gorge' hoping to see Egyptian vulture. Parked just outside the hydroelectric station we had a great start with a family of 5 Hawfinch and several Golden oriole in a dead tree over towards the river. Also present were Great spotted woodpecker, Green woodpecker, Spotted flycatcher, White wagtail, Chiffchaff and Serin. No luck with the Egyptian vultures but further up river we did see some Griffon vultures, bee-eaters and party of at least 10 Alpine swift, and back at the start a Booted eagle and a female Sparrowhawk.
