Griffon Vulture

Spain is great for Griffon Vulture. I took this image in a superb river gorge called Hoces del Duraton, in central Castilla, 1 hour drive from Madrid. I spent hours watching them gliding, less than 2 meters over my head.

España es fantástica para buitre leonado (Gyps fulvus). Esta foto es de las Hoces del Duratón, una garganta de rio espectacular, a una hora en coche de Madrid. Me pasé horas viendo planear a los buitres, algunas veces a menos de dos metros sobre mi cabeza.
