We moved along the valley and stopped near the dam of the embalse, here we checked the river hearing Cetti's and Reed Warblers and then picked up a distant pair of Bonelli's Eagle (Aguila-azor / Hieraetus faciatus). At this point we jumped back into the car and drove down the side of the lake and parked again and had slightly better views of the Eagles before they drifted away over the rigde. From the roadside we had a good view over the lake where we heard and saw Mallard, Northern Shoveler, 270+ Common Pochards, Eurasian Coot, Common Moorhen, Little Grebe, Eurasian Teal (Cerceta Común / Anas crecca), Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea), House Martin (Avión Común / Delichon urbica) and a distant Northern Goshawk (Azor Común / Accipitor gentillis).
|Common / Southern Blue (Polyommatus icarus / celina).|
|Small White (Artogeia rapae).|
