Moving from the Pyrenees to the Pico's.

Change of location through some nasty weather.

A short hold up on the way south.
I packed up a damp tent and just throw it onto of a tarp on the back seat of the car as I was probably going to be putting it back up in a wet Potes later.
I went into the campsite bar, had a coffee and paid Pedro for a nice stay before heading off, for most of the drive it was throwing it down and it was not at all nice to drive in due to the spray and worst of all was that around half of the cars didn't put any lights on and made no allowance for the conditions.
I am sure that a big percentage of drivers in modern cars think that as the nice lights on the front are on all the time that the rear ones are as well which they aren't and makes driving much more dangerous.
During the dive I saw very little but in the clearer patches along the coast I did add Yellow-legged Gull (Gaviota Patiamarilla / Larus Michahellis), Red Kite (Milano Real / Milvus milvus), Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo), Carrion Crow (Corneja Negra / Corvus corone), European Bee-eater (Abejaruco Común / Merops apiaster), Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica) and whilst I was pitching the tent I had a pair of Peregrine Falcons (Halcón Peregrino / Falco peregrinus) over head calling noisily.
After getting sorted I went down to the bar, had a drink and some nice food before turning in well Knackered.
