The following pages are a photographic representation of a trip to the region of Catalonia in NE Spain focusing on two of the region's most emblematic species; the Lammergeier and the Little Bustard. We initially stayed in the village of Conques for easy access to the Pre Pyrenees where the Vulture species are more abundant transfering to the mediaeval village of Montsonis as a base for exploring the Plains of Lleida which is the easternmost limit of the Little Bustard.

Our visit coincided with a profusion of poppies making the plains a wonderful spectacle.

Although not a birding holiday per se , we managed 70 species including two Western Palearctic lifers.
