La Cabrera - Young Griffon Vulture atop El Cancho de la Bola

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

Possibly a juvenile - maybe inexperienced with humans - they are normally shy and I was therefore lucky to get these shots.

Next time I will try and get a shot this close but of a vulture in flight. I may not succeed!

The village in the left distance is Uceda in Guadalajara province - thank you Angel, El Alfa III for correcting my previous assumption.

Thank you Christian. I remember this as if it were only yesterday. I am astonished to see that it was taken in April 2013! The light was good. On many other visits I have never seen the far distance look so near!

Best wishes, Andy
