Silos, Castillo Solarana and Burgos city, Burgos Province.

A morning walk followed by a wine tasting and a night on the town in Burgos.

Santi on the roof.
We started the day with a walk down to the river near the camping ground and then on down through the allotments and then back up through the town, along the streams in the allotment areas I was surprised to find a Dipper (Mirlo Acuático / Cinclus cinclus) in the same area we saw House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris), Short-toed Treecreeper (Agateador Común / Certhia brachydactyla), Goldfinch (Jilguero / Carduelis carduelis), Bonelli's Warbler (Mosquitero Papialbo / Phylloscopus bonelli), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula), Common Chaffinch (Pinzón Vulgar / Fringilla coelebs), White (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba) and Grey Wagtail (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea), Mallard (Anade Azulón / Anas platyrhynchos), Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti), Song Thrush (Zorzal Común / Turdus philomelos), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula) and Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla).
and Howard assisting.
After we got back to Santi's he did a repair on the Ariel up on the roof before heading to a Winery in the town of Castillo Solarana where we had a tour and tasting which went down very nicely, we returned to Santi's before heading North for the night in Burgos.
Some of the stock, too big for Jayne and Barb to smuggle out.
Once we were settled in at Santi's appartment we hit the town and had a great night in several different bars including one where we had some very nice Chocolate and Churros. 
Some of the smaller stock.
We finished off in Café Espana and then made our way back to Santi's for the night.
and the very big stores.

At the tasting.

At the tasting, wine and tapas.
