    This link is a story about Bearded Vultures breeding for the first time in ages in the Sierra Nevada, Spain. The area is the Parque Natural Sierras de Cazola which having just had an explore around it in Google maps looks very interesting and has been added to our list of places to visit on our next trip to Spain - which is just 6 weeks away. It is north east of Granada. The town of Cazola itself looks attractive too, switch on the imagery from this link for a peek.

    Dbk thanks, we've been through the Cazorla Parque a couple of times and have seen Lammergeier (Bearded Vulture) in the Pyrenees on a number of occasions, a magnificent bird. The Cazorla Area is good for birding at anytime of the year. Thanks for the heads up re the Lammergeier and it's good to see them re-establishing former breeding areas.
