Brown Bears, birds & butterflies in the Alto Sil & Somiedo N.P. : Trip Report August 2014 John Muddeman
09/09/2014
A strongly reworked, much less intensive and highly successful version of the previous tour. At a gentler pace we made just one bear watch a day, all but one of these at dawn, resulting in a remarkable final tally of 11 different Brown Bears! A wealth of other sightings included Wild Cat, Southern Chamois, Alpine Accentor and 57 species of butterflies, such as the endemic Chapman's Ringlet.

Nearly a year after visiting the area too late in mid-July, a brief stop in the W Gredos mountains en route to a weekend away looking for dragonflies in the Hurdes mountains came up trumps.

A short walk at a new spot in a favourite area of mine, three years after finding Bladder Senna, the larval food plant, paid off with the discovery of a small colony of this very scarce and rather enigmatic species.
