Spain and Italy – October 2015

Spent a lovely 3 days with family in Italy, got a lovely speeding ticket in France, and birded for a few days in Spain.  Below are a few of the new birds I’d seen.

Special Thanks are in order to John Edwards, who was nice enough to bird with me for two days in the Benidorm area.

One thing I realized birding in Spain is that ALL BIRDS ARE AFRAID OF YOU, GETTING CLOSE IS TOUGH.

Ciao for now
