Lots of "shooting" about here today so we made our way up to the Charca de Negra ponds area. This was swamped with people and all we had here were Goldfinches. Along at the Fossil Cave a single Crag Martin and more Meadow Pipits were spotted, so we moved further along to the hawthorn bushes. Here we found over a dozen Ring Ouzels, four Mistle Thrushes, Rock Buntings, Black Redstarts, Sardinian Warblers, Robins, Blackbirds, House Sparrows, Chough, a Dartford Warbler and a single Hoopoe.
