Hello Barbara and Jerry,

If you are coming along the Antequera road, A 367, you will go through a village called Cueva del Becerro. We are 12 minutes from there. After the village you will eventually get to a BP garage on your left, keep going for a few kms, you will pass (on your right) a place selling swimming pools, there is one up  on it's end.
After approx 1km there is a Restaurante Cimbra on your left, turn left there (there is a butane gas depot next to it) and park outside the restaurant. That is the junction. It is very small and is onto a lane. If you reach the traffic lights you have gone too far.

Coming from the San Pedro road, continue to the traffic lights and take the A 367 for Antequera (2nd right at the traffic lights). Restaurante Cimbra is therefore on your right.

Mb no is 616 891 359

See you tomorrow

Hi Everyone,

Just to say a number of us fancy a lunch in a local venta, which of course can add to the attraction of the day! So no need for a packed lunch.

ABS Field Meeting 10th Nov. After some hasty rescheduling of both the meeting place and venue, due to heavy rains damaging high mountain access routes, the society had a successful day touring various sites at lower altitudes around the Serrania de Ronda. 63 species and great lunch ensured a very successful day! Hopefully Ellie will provide a trip report and species list. Thanks to all those attending.

Peter

We were looking forward so much to visiting Sierra de las Nieves, where we have never been.
Alas, what a pity that such a well prepared programme had to be cancelled! Hope we get the chance again some other time.

Many thanks to Peter who saved the day with a quick response and an alternative plan!

Regards
Petrea and Mogens.

We have done a recce of the Sierra de las Nievas site today and I am pleased to tell you that all the tracks are passable.

The Field Trip will therefore go ahead this Saturday 24th November and I hope to see you there.

If you are coming would you please post on the forum to tell me you are.

For the details of the trip see the original posting - everything remains the same other than the date.

Today, although it was warm on the coast, it was cold in the mountains.  So bring warm clothing and don't forget your packed lunch.

Kind regards
David

SIERRA DE LAS NIEVAS FIELD TRIP

Seven of us met at the meeting point and enjoyed six and a half hours of good birding and wonderful scenery.  The weather was kind to us and it remaind dry throughout the day although the temperature on occassions was rather chilly.

The track along the gorge had been severly damaged by the recent storms but some repair work that had been carried out made it passable.  However, the track up to Los Quejigales had been properly scraped and was in the best condition that I have seen.

In total we saw thirty one different species, which is good for this site in late November.  The species we recorded were (in systematic order) -

Griffon Vulture, Golden Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Wood Pigeon, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Chough, Jay, Common Raven, Crested Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Wood Lark, Eurasian Crag Martin, Common Chiffchaff, Dartford Warbler, Firecrest, Nuthatch, Short-toed Treecreeper, Blackbird, Redwing, Mistle Thrush, Robin, Black Redstart, Stonechat, Black Wheatear, White Wagtail, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Crossbill, Rock Bunting, Cirl Bunting.

The highlight of the day was the first winter Golden Eagle gliding in the sky above us.  This was followed by the Redwing and Wood Larks.

Thank you to everyone who attended for making it such an enjoyable day.

David
