Some photos from walks on Mount Zalagh in early April 2014. Griffon Vultures are regular visitors to Zalagh and in past visits we have seen the rarer Egyptian Vultures. The recent visits also yielded sightings of Kites and a Black-Crowned Tchagara, also plenty of Alpine Swifts, Chaffinches, Green Finches, and a Corn Bunting singing from a tree top. April also saw the emergence of lots of Butterflies with some large yellow Swallowtails being particularly impressive.
