|Ron, Jonathan and Paul ready for action|
The current hot weather prompted Ron Bennett, Jonathan Kemp, Paul Williams and myself decided to take the drive down to Prats de Mollo Reserve Naturelle in the French Pyrenees. Our main quarry was to see Lammergeier a iconic bird of this region and one which is seen here on a regular basis. We began by driving up a very bumpy road to just over 1700 metres. Here the ground is open and ideal for watching raptors.
