Trip report written by Job Roig

Aprill 3th 2009

We started out early on this foggy day with the first Cirl Bunting males singing around us. We decided to stop on the way in some unique mountain meadows to have a chance of seeing some water birds. During a short walk near the lake we found Green Sandpiper, Grey Heron, Great Cormorant, Common Coot and heard the calls of several Common Moorhens. Other species such as Cetti’s Warbler, Short-toed Treecreeper and Chiffchaff were located on the way back.

We then went on directly to our first stop near Vall d’Aran to look for alpine birds. The first mountain bushes provided us with close views of Yellowhammer, Water Pipit, Rock Bunting and Dunnock. We passed near a subalpine pine forest and could add Crossbill, Ring Ouzel and Mistle Thrush to our daily list. After several minutes of waiting for Alpine Accentor we could obtain brief views of one bird flying away from us.

On the way to our second birding spot, a flock of five Red-Billed Chough was seen close by, searching for insects in horse dung.

The arrival at our second spot quickly provided us with some forest species such Goldcrest and Siskin, and suddenly we observed a breeding pair of Citril Finch with a full coloured male displaying at the side of the road. In the same place we also had more chances to see this subalpine finch. The sun started to shine, and a flock of 15 migrating Black Kites and a Sparrowhawk were observed soaring on the thermals.

During this part of the day we changed from the highest Pyrenees to another mountain range to the south. The air en route was full of raptors like Red Kite, Short-toed Eagle, Bonelli’s Eagle, Common Kestrel, Golden Eagle, and also the first Lammergeier resting on a rock.

Our next stop was at some southern cliffs, home of rock species. Waiting for these birds, new records like Firecrest, Dipper and Crag Martin were added to the list. After several minutes of scoping the big walls, a fast movement in a little cave allowed us to locate an active Wallcreeper male searching for food. In the same zone Blue Rock Thrush and some juveniles and adults of Lammergeier were flying around the highest parts of the cliff.

In the afternoon, after seeing some Alpine Swifts near the same place, we moved to the high mountains again, searching for new birds. The chance to help out at a place where some people feed the vultures with carrion every week was the special surprise of the day. In the same place, looking through our telescope, we could see Lammergeier, Black Vulture, Egyptian Vulture and Griffon Vulture all at the same time!

On the way back home we got the last birds such as Wood Lark, Rock Sparrow, Melodious Warbler, Sky Lark and White Stork.
