Birds of April May and June.

Is already available On line the last report on the records of the birds of Burgos, that corresponds to the last three months, April May and June.

I believe that the most interesting records are:
Records of Herons and Waders, emphasizing the Great Bittern, Squacco Heron and the 15 different species of waders.
Record of Red-footed Falcon.
And different records of pre-breeding and postnuptial seasons.

Recent reports in the home page of the Yearbook.

Ebro footpath GR 99.

This week, finally, I have obtained the guide of the Ebro footpath GR 99 (guide book and 47 maps). The work that has realised is impressive.
It is now possible to walk the whole length of the river Ebro, from its source in Fontibre to the Mediterranean along the newly-inaugurated, GR 99, the "Natural Ebro Footpath"
Great amount of natural spaces for birdwatchig, from the Reservoir of the river Ebro to the Delta of the Ebro, the list of birds found in all the route, can be impressive.

The footpath totals 1,260 km and crosses six regions Cantabria, Castilla y León, the Basque Country, La Rioja, Navarra, Aragon and Catalonia.
In the Inn Mill of Canto we are very proud of to be part of this foopath like lodging route.
