Event
ABS field meeting to the Penon de Zaframagon Olvera
Date
June 16th 2018
Meeting Point 
Hotel Estación Vía Verde Olvera
Time 
9.30
Leader for the day
Frank Hair

Directions to the meeting point
Check the internet from your area,  The Estacion is at the start of the via verde in Olvera, if you type the meeting point into google maps you will find it.  At the moment there is a diversion at the top of the hill but this should be gone by June, if not I will meet at a different point.

Information about the meeting
I plan to drive to the car park 2km from the information center and walk to the viaduct under the penon.  The information center now has a coffee shop so I intend to have lunch here, I will be bringing a packed lunch but the coffee shop has some food.

Accommodation in the area
We have no corporate members in Olvera so check the internet.  We have 3 hotels in the town plus lots of houses to rent. Via airbnb and booking.com.

Clothing and food
It is June and we will be exposed so bring hats and plenty of water.  Drinks are available in the coffee shop.

Possible birds.
Griffon Vulture. Egyptian Vulture, Short-toed Eagle, Booted Eagle, Bonelli's Eagle, Lesser Kestrel, Little Owl, Alpine Swift, Bee-eater, Thekla Lark, Crag Martin, Red-rumped Swallow, Nightingale, Blue rock thrush, Dartford Warbler, Subalpine Warbler, Cetti's Warbler, Chough, Golden Oriole are just a few.



We will be looking for a member to write a trip report for this meeting.
I have just been to the road leading from Olvera to the estition on the via verde and it is still closed, but there is a detour. As you look at the start of the road turn left, only 5 meters along this road and just past the bus station you turn right.(you will see the sign for the cycle hire) you follow this road for 20 meters it then turns right, at the end of this road turn left back on to the road leading to the via verde.  The visitors centre will be doing some ringing for us to see.

Hi Frankie,
I have already replied to say we are coming, but I want to make sure:  we are coming from Antequera.  Am I right in remembering that we take the first exit to Olvera from our direction?  We don't have GPS but we know the way to the old station and the Via Verde.  If there is any change, please email me: jandavefisher@hotmail.com
Thanks
Janet Fisher
