SPAIN- DAY 3 Top Cat!

Wildcat- another stunning individual. We nick named this one 'Adam Ant' because of the face stripes
 Cantabrian Chamois
 Hybrid Domestic Cat x Wildcat. Note the lack of rufous muzzle, broad bands on back rather than a single black line and also (not visible in this pic) lack of stripes on neck and the tail was dark rather than dark tipped with stripes. Note the banded legs typical of Wildcat. 
 Wryneck- a few other passerines and migrants today including lots of Pied and Spotted Flycatcher, Common Redstart, Stonechat, Iberian Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Yellow Wagtails and White Wagtails. 
 Brown Trout and Gudgeon in one of the mountain streams 
 We found evidence of Otter here and also saw Red Deer wading in the water. Yesterday had Golden Oriole and Cuckoo in here. Also Iberian Green and Great Spotted Woodpecker today
