Hacho, Loja, Granada Province.

A short walk with Brian and Jo from Australia.

I returned from the UK and caught up with Brian and Jo, during the evening we had a drive just up the road and then walked up a track along the Northern side of the hill.
During the walk we had good views of a pair of Bonelli's Eagles (Aguila-azor Perdicera / Hieraaetus faciatus), a family party of Common Kestrels (Cernicalo Vulgar / Falco tinnunculus), Blue-rock Thrush (Roquero Solitario / Monticola solitarius), Rock Bunting (Escribano Montesino / Emberiza cia), Rock Sparrow (Gorrión Chillón / Petronia petronia), Bonelli's (Mosquitero Papialbo / Phylloscopus bonelli) and Sardinian Warbler (Curruca Cabecinegra / Sylvia melanocephala), Great (Carbonera Común / Parus major) and Long-tailed Tit (Mito / Aegithalos caudatus), Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula) and as we walked back a singing male Cirl Bunting (Escribano Soteno / Emberiza cirlus).
