A walk along the old tram line in the Sierra Nevada near Gűejar Sierra.

We came to a damp area on the roadside and found a nice male Keeled Skimmer (Orthetrum coerulescens) and literally 100s of Southern Marbled Skippers, a single Nettle-tree Butterfly (Libythea celtis) which was particularly pleasing as I had not got the camera on one before, Silver-studded Blue (Plebejus argus), Clouded Yellow (Colias Común / Colias corcea), Bath (Blanqiverdosa / Pontia daplidice) and Black-veined White (Banca del Majuelo / Aporia crataegi).
We made a stop at one of the bars and had a couple of drinks before making our way back down the track towards the car adding Knapweed Fritillary (Melitaea phoebe) and two Large Tortoiseshell (Nymphalis polychlorus) and a Grayling (Hipparchia semele).

We dropped back down the hill and headed back to the house for a quiet afternoon on the terrace.
