Hi
Myself and my wife Wendy would like to join the group (I registered seconds ago) and visit El Torcal on May 21. We shall stay in Antequera and then meet you at the visitor centre at 9.45. I have read the recent posts and am very excited about the day. Is there anything else we need to know?

Are you members of the Society Richard? These Field Meetings are held each and every month for members of the Andalucia Bird Society. You can join as a member on the day if you have not already done so. I am sure you will receive a warm welcome from our members on the day.

Hi, Peter
Thanks for the reply. Yes, Wendy and myself would like to become members and I will join for both of us on the day.
There is just one problem. Wendy cannot attend this time and will have our car. I will therefore be travelling by train to Antequera, where I shall be staying at the Colon Hotel on Friday night. Do you think that someone could give me a lift from and back to Antequera on the Saturday? I would be up for the early or later call. i would be really grateful if someone could help out and of course contribute to petrol costs.
Best wishes
Richard

John and I are staying in Villanueva at  'Rincon del Torcal' on Friday night. Certainly aim to be up for the Early Call. Fingers crossed for the Eagle Owl.   Regards Maureen

Dear all,

It looks like next Saturday we are going to enjoy good weather, perhaps a little windy. It won’t be very cold in the morning, though some warm clothes will be necessary for the brave early birders, nor too hot during the day but a bit of sunscreen will be welcome.

If we are as lucky as I was yesterday there, the trip will be great. I won’t even post my trip report and photos not to create big expectations...

For those that will base attendance to the first call at 6:00 on the Eagle Owl, I have to say I missed it yesterday, though I recorded 24 species before coming back to the village at 9:00!

We will stop for lunch in recreational facilities with tables and a bit of shade at around 13:00, so bring your picnic bag with you and do not worry about our lunch break during the morning.

Please, confirm your attendance, specially those coming at 6:00, and be punctual as we need to get to the Visitors Centre as soon as possible.

See you on Saturday!!

Four of us will arrive by 9:30 tomorrow. Myself, Elena, Mary Ann Murphy and Gerry? who will join the Society on arrival. Look forward to seeing you then. By the way last weekend you could not reach the Visitor's Centre by car. They were busing people up from a parking place about 15 minutes down the hill, there was a fare to pay for the bus. Could be early arrivals will be allowed through but be prepared.

Hola a todos!

This is not about the many fine birds, we saw, but ID of the orchids:

After consulting my books, I believe that the unidentified one at the visitor´s center was  Orchis laxiflora

And the latest one, at l late stop: Anacamptis pyramidalis.

Any other suggestions?

The photos I´ve got can be seen here:

https://picasaweb.google.com/104920847831480883808/6289700725144625473

There seem to be general agreement about the pyramidalis, of which I have no photo (I think Luis Alberto has).

hello Petrea,

Have a look at O. tenthredinifera ssp. ficalhoana for the Sawfly orchid. The later species often are the subspecies.

Have a look also at Orchis langei as it could be rather than O.laxiflora though I am not 100% sure as can't see them too brilliantly.

Saludos,
Brenda

Hi Brenda,

The laxiflora should prefer humid plases, which indicates that you may well be right about the langei. However, I came across this comparison, which suggest olbiensis:

 http://www.adolfoventas.es/galeria/index.php?file=minicms/cms&id=86

What is confusing is that it has no spots, see Luis Albertos blog (nd photo):

http://www.birdaytrip.es/blog/item/561-andalucia-bird-society-may-field-meeting-at-el-torcal-malaga-2016-05-21

A hybrid?

About the tenthredinifera: I thought that it was rather late there, and the flowers were much larger that we find them in my neck of thw wood, so likely to be the ficalhoana:

Thanks for your input, Brenda! :)

Saludos
Petrea

The O. langei in our area are mostly without spots, or very faint.

Pleased to have been of help.

Un saludo,

Brenda
