A later than normal start today with a relaxing days sightseeing around Montanchez and Merida, with a little bit of birding thrown in for good measure.
According to the Crossbill Guide the Moorish castle at Montanchez holds Black Wheatear. We failed on our visit but took consolation in finding a roosting Eagle Owl on the cliff below the castle.
Famed for its impressive Roman ruins Merida is a must if you got half a day or so to spare.
Squaccos and a light phase Booted Eagle.
