69, 70,71, 72. I am trying to countrepparttar Griffon Vulture's as they glide effortlessly on their 2m. wingspan overrepparttar 147070 top ofrepparttar 147071 mountains opposite my home.

Earlier I was checkingrepparttar 147072 damage to our vegetable patch asrepparttar 147073 wild boar were here again last night and they seem to have taken a shine to my husband's carrots!

I glance up as I hearrepparttar 147074 screech of a Booted Eagle letting his mate know she has nothing to fear fromrepparttar 147075 carrion eating vultures as their constant circling takes them further and further downrepparttar 147076 valley searching no doubt for some unfortunate Ibex or goat who tried one leap too many.

The wildlife here is phenomenal ndrepparttar 147077 variety of birds seems never ending. Last night we could hearrepparttar 147078 hooting ofrepparttar 147079 European Eagle owl atrepparttar 147080 valley bottom and atrepparttar 147081 sametime were lulled back to sleep byrepparttar 147082 beautifu singing of a nightingale perched somewhere outside our bedroom window.

After living here for over 14 years I am still amazed byrepparttar 147083 diversity of wildlife. I am still in awe atrepparttar 147084 glimpse of a yellow flash throughrepparttar 147085 undergrowth as a Golden Oriele goes about it's business.I love to watchrepparttar 147086 comic Hoopoe hopping frantically about chasing insects andrepparttar 147087 sound that I can only describe as gunfire asrepparttar 147088 many varieties of woodpeckers seek out grubs. I am especially intrigued byrepparttar 147089 vast array of birds of prey soaring effortlesly over our home, many of which I still can't identify.
