Interesting birdlife around Granero del Burro

RockBunting
For the last few days there has been a male Rock Bunting picking away at the grass seed outside the kitchen window at Granero del Burro. He seems to spend the whole day in or around the garden and can be feeding for up to 2 hours at a time!! They are a resident species in the area but it is unusual to have one as a garden visitor. For any photographer, he is very photogenic. He is even close enough to get some shots with a standard camera on full zoom!!

The weather has been great recently and today was a perfect day for a walk from the barn in the local valley. There are some local pigs in a field not far away and they love Chestnuts. There were some old ones left over from the Autumn, so they had a late Christmas treat. There was also plenty of birdlife. Firecrests, Green Woodpeckers, Long Tailed Tits, Iberian Chiffchaff, Cirl Buntings and plenty of Buzzards overhead. There was even an old fox trotting across one of the fields.
If you want to check out the local birdlife have a look at Aves de Villadún-Penarronda and Ría de Ribadeo
