Brown Bears, birds & butterflies in the Picos de Europa & Somiedo N.P. : Trip Report August 2015 John Muddeman
03/09/2015
A new less intensive and still highly successful version of the previous tour. An average of just one bear watch a day, mostly at dawn, resulted in a fine observation of a big black male on our very first attempt during a very difficult year! A wealth of other sightings included Southern Chamois, 3 Wallcreepers, Western Spectre and 61 species of butterflies, such as the endemic Spanish Argus and Chapman's Ringlet.
