Red Backed Shrike (Lanius collurio). A beautiful photo of the beautiful Butcher Bird - so called for its habit of impaling its insect prey on thorns. They´ll be back in Alto Aragón in the spring. Many thanks to Josemi (ornithologist & photographer)for the picture.

Los Chotos - Mountain Music

We were invited to play at the Dolmen de Tella Fiesta which was misty and atmospheric by the neolithic stones. Great traditional music and a brilliant dance after dinner. The Chotos sounded great.

Virgen de la Peña, Salvatierra de Esca

I'm not a religious person, but I can really understand why the people of Salvatierra de Esca chose this place to worship their God....
Twenty years in the Pyrenees and there´s lots to share. Watch this space
