Embalse De Yesa (Spain), 12th Sept

Left the campsite in the Pyrenees at 6.30am and drove over into Spain, stopping for a short time at a large reservoir Embalse De Yesa to look for fishing Ospreys. The reservoir must be the first source of food for many of the Ospreys that have just crossed the western Pyrenees. And sure enough while waiting for the kettle to boil an Osprey carried a fish to a dead tree on the opposite side. Also at the same place was a large flock of Swallows and Sand Martins just leaving their roost in a ruined church. Camping at Monfrague tonight before driving down to Tarifa tomorrow.
