On one day we had a trip to the coast along to the Cap de Creus, but the weather was poor with strong cool northerlies, so not much was seen apart from a few Sardinian Warblers. A detour to a small pond near Aiguamolls de L'Emporda was much better with 4 Rollers, 2 Great White Egrets, 40+ Cattle Egrets, 3+ Bee-eater, Purple Heron, 5+ White Storks and Hobby all seen well.

Heading back inland up to Maia de Montcal and Beuda more butterflies were seen, plus a couple of Griffon Vultures.

Spotted Fritillary, male.
Back at Crespia both White and Orange Featherlegs were seen, strange looking damsels with broadened legs -
