Hi Everyone.

Just a quick request which will make the day go smoother, could guests who are attending this meeting please let me know in an email to lojawildlife@gmail.com if they will want to have a menu at the Cortijo de Tajar at lunch time. I can book a table in advanced and let David know how many are attending which should mean it is quicker and we can spend more time birding and less time eating or waiting for the food anyway.

Many thanks and looking forward to seeing you, Mick.

Hi All.

OK, it is just a week to the day in Granada Province. 19 members are booked in and at the moment 10 of us are having lunch at the Cortijo.
If anyone who has not put their names above please do so as this lets me sort the route as parking can be tight at a couple of spot and knowing how many cars will needed and fitted in.
I will be booking the lunch before hand on Monday so if you wish to join us please confirm by Sunday on either lojawildlife@gmail.com or mickbirdingispain@gmail.com

The Ring Ouzels are showig well along with several Redwings and a small group of Alpine Accentors. I have not seen the Eagle Owl for a while but they are there.
On the fields the Little Bustards (80+), Stone Culews (600+) are here in good numbers and I am seeing Bluethroats, Iberian Magpies, Water Pipits and Bramblings on the fields near Huétor as well.

Many Thanks Mick.
