Around Santo Domingo de Silos, Burgos Province, Spain.

Santi's Garden and a walk along the Rio Mataviejas late.
Ebird List.

We had a quiet morning, I checked the birds in the garden finding Blackcap (Curruca Capirotada / Sylvia atricailla), Blackbird (Mirlo Común / Turdus merula), Dunnock (Acentor Común / Prunella modularis), House Sparrow (Gorrión Común / Passer domesticus), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula) and lots of flyover Griffon Vulture (Bultre Leonado / Gyps fulvus).
During the morning we went down to the bakery, had a chat with the two ladies and then went for a walk down along the Rio but as it was quite cloudy and looked like rain I didn't take the camera, which was typical as we saw some interesting species which included Dunnock, Common Chiffchaff (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita), Great Spotted (Pico Picapinos / Dendrocopos major) and Iberian Green Woodpecker (Pito Real / Picus sharpei) HO, 2x Red Kites (Milano Real / Milvus milvus), Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea), Carrion Crow (Corneja Negra / Corvus corone), Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti), Firecrest (Reyezuelo Listado / Regulus ignicapillus), Grey Wagtail (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea) and both Rock (Escribano Montesino / Emberiza cia) and Cirl Bunting (Escribano Soteno / Emberiza cirlus).
During the evening we again popped down to Silos, had a beer and met a friend of Santi's called Maria.
