Estany de Banyoles
Best birds here were Black Kite and 3 Great Reed Warblers. Odonata were represented by Red viened Darter, Norfolk Hawker, Lesser Emperor and Copper Demoiselle.

Short-tailed Blue

Looking at this and the previous posts Stewart, I think it shows what a poor countryside we have here!
