Sunday 27 May, Trujillo to Sierra de Gredos, partly cloudy, little or no wind, 27C: After five wonderful days at Finca Santa Marta we left Extremadura for the mountains of Sierra de Gredos, in the province of Castille-Leon. The journey included a stop at a bridge over a small river where we located a Dipper as well as Honey Buzzard, Red Kite, 5 Booted Eagle (all dark morph), Short-toed Eagle, 2x Hobby, Bonelli's Warbler and a female Pied Flycatcher (not seen by me). After checking into the Parador de Gredos hotel we drove a short distance to look around some meadows and mixed woodland; here we saw another Hobby, Green Woodpecker, Woodlark, Yellow Wagtail, Melodious Warbler, Bonelli's Warbler, Firecrest, Northern Wheatear, Long-tailed Tit, Azure-winged Magpie, Carrion Crow, Tree Sparrow, Golden Oriole, Rock Sparrow, Rock Bunting, Common Whitethroat and Garden Warbler. We also spotted a Song Thrush, unusual in this area during the breeding season.
