France and Spain, 7th Sept - 22nd Oct

My plan was to drive my car from Rutland Water to the Strait of Gibralter via France following migrating Ospreys and other migrants. First stop was going to be l'Aiguillon-sur-Mer (photo above) on the French west coast to look for passage Ospreys, then Organbidexka in the western Pyrenees to watch more migrating Ospreys along with other birds before crossing into Spain and driving down to the Strait of Gibralter where i had arranged to help count raptors, storks, seabirds and passerines with Fundacion Migres. I then planned to finish off with a week in Extremadura before catching the Santander-Plymouth ferry. Click on pictures for bigger image.
