Santo Domingo de Silos, Burgos Province, Spain.

A Christmas mornings walk along the Arroyo Matviejas Valley.
Ebird Link for the full List.

The Monastery in Santo Domingo de Silos.

After getting a very nice video call from my Son Alan, Becki and the boys I went out for a walk, I dropped down passed the monastery and then walked through the allotment area around to the right along the stream.
I then doubled back but on the higher track, crossed the Camping Ground and then continued on up the valley to a small gorge where I needed wellies to continue so I turned around and walked back to the Camping area and took the track which followed the stream again.
I crossed the stream and walked back up to Santi's via the track above the ring road around the village.
Highlights included Hawfinch (Picogordo / Coccotraustes coccotrauetes), Great Spotted Woodpecker (Pico Picapinos / Dendrocopos major), Siskin (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus) and both Rock (Escribano Montesino / Emberiza cia) and Cirl Bunting (Escribano Soteno / Emberiza cirlus).
