At around 12 o'clock we headed to Montnegre at the entrance to the track we watch the Griffon Vultures, Chough, Raven, Peregrine Falcon, Dartford Warbler. Blue rock Thrush
Big surprise of the day was a superb full summer plumage male Subalpine Warbler, which I fail photograph by some wrong decision making.
Nothing other of interest to report as we worked our way down to Alicante.

Tomorrow Petrola and surrounding area
