The Last post were off to Tosos

Got up 0745HRS it looks cloudy today no cats in the car park we have breakfast and say goodbye to
our lovely host we head for town in the rain to pick up our rolls for lunch.

Its goodbye Gallocanta we headed for another hot spot on route back its called
Embalse de Torcas Lewis and I had been here 4 years ago but today we have come
from a different direction giving us  a splendid view of the res.
On the reservoir we get our first great crested grebe  of the trip plus pochards and comorants,
we decide to drive down and cross the dam wall to our surprise a Golden Eagle is perched at
some distance its not long before a pair start flying.
They now proceed to mob a Bonelli's eagle ,possibly we have Golden and Bonelli's breeding in this
area after scoping we also find a Griffon on its nest too.
On leaving we have a good view of Grey Wagtail as we head for Tosos and our last
stop which is El Planeron a lagoon here holds duck but soon they are off mostly Teal
Scenically this is a wonderful place it look likes something out of a spaghetti western,
however the wind is making it difficult to focus here,this panorama is exceptional.
Well another excellent Nature Trek comes to an end thanks to John and Jenny Willshere and all my
fellow travellers its viva Espana  as we leave Zaragozza
