Cañete la Real, Malaga Province.

A visit to a Vulture feeding station that has no food as usual !!!

Jayne and I were heading back home today after our short visit to Sue and Sam's, so once Sam was off to school we went back to the ouse briefly and said thanks and goodbye to Sue before heading into Ronda for a morning around the shops.
Once we had done what we wanted in Ronda we started to head back towards the house but called in at the feeding station on the outskirts of Cañete la Real but as expected there was not food at the site t there were still a few Griffon Vultures (Bultre Leonado / Gyps fulvus) flying passed the site heading along the nearby ridges towards Ronda. I also saw a single male Marsh Harrier (Aguilucho Lagunero Occidental / Circus aeruginosus), White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba) and Common Chiffchaff (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita) but liitle else.
From here we headed to Antiquera and the home.

Photographs from the top: 2x Griffon Vultures (Bultre Leonado / Gyps fulvus).
