P.N. Alto Ebro Y Rudrón. Cliffs and plateaux areas.

 Cliffs of Tudanca
 52 species confirming the variety of species that can be recorded in a simple four-hour day birding in the P.N. Hoces del Alto Ebro y Rudrón Natural Reserve  in the region of Las Merindades. Again it is found that the breeding this year is quite normal, unlike last year which was really a bad breeding year. Many bird families, Finches, Chats, Sparrows, Crows are seen ...
We start prospecting in the surrounding area, checked in several species within Zamanzas Valley, Swifts and Martins in the villages, Thrushes, Shrikes, Pipits in the meadows and among the oaks of the forest resound Woodpeckers, Warblers and Pigeons.
In the plateaux, in small shrubs and stones become perching and breeding sites for Buntings and Wheatears, in villages and churches we find a small colonies of House and Rock Sparrows. In the sky, great movement of Swifts, Swallows and Martins (House, Crag and Sand).
With this route and thanking Jean and David his interest in birds of Burgos, we continued to collect data for the Atlas of Breeding Birds of Spain.
