A most pleasurable trip to Northern Spain to see a Target list of high altitude birds, Owls and Plain birds such as Sandgrouse and Dupont's Lark

Although our wish list was not fully fulfilled by the absence of Wallcreeper , Alpine Accentor and Dupont's Lark we did manage 87 species.

It would appear that due to both an early Spring and one of higher than normal Temperatures the Alpine birds had travelled to higher elevations than normal. Although we visted many traditional early summer sites, many of which were above the snow line, we, and all other groups we met, were unsuccessful.

Similarly our timing for the Dupont's Lark was late. Although they were heard briefly on numerous occassions they failed to show themselves!

Its good to have a sound reason for a revisit!
