Soon after parking the car we saw a confiding family party of Spanish Ibex - lovely to see these beautiful animals so close. A female Black Redstart and was closely followed by several Black Wheatear and a couple of fly-by Alpine Swift. As we walked up the track further into the mountains we logged many Blue Rock Thrush, plus Rock Bunting, Thekla/Crested Lark, Rock Sparrow, more Black Wheatear, female Common Redstart, several more Black Redstart, Meadow Pipit, Blackcap and a flock of 50+ Goldfinch; a Wryneck was heard calling several times but wasn't seen. Raptors were in short supply with just a few Griffon Vulture gliding around.
