La Yecla PNat and nearby fields, Santo Domingo de Silos, Burgos Province, Spain.

Just a short visit before the rains arrived.

Griffon Vulture (Bultre Leonado / Gyps fulvus).
After lunch I popped just up the road to La Yecla Gorge but the light was really bad and it was rather cool so It was a very brief visit and I only managed to see Griffon Vultures (Bultre Leonado / Gyps fulvus), Wren (Chochin / Troglodytes troglodytes) and Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula) before I jumped back into the warm car.

I had a drive along one of the track which has farm land one side and uniper woodland on the other, just after starting out I had a very nice female Roe Deer (Corzo / Capreolus capreolus) which stood in a patch of cultivated ground amongst the Junipers, it stood nicely as I went up the track and was still there when I came back giving me a second chance.
