After lunch and some superb views of Crested Tit at Font Roja, we headed across the valley to the other side of Alcoi where a number of gorges can be accessed. Our walk into the main gorge produced 9 Griffon Vulture (including the wing tagged bird pictured above), Black Redstart (15+), Black Wheatear (2, pictured above), Sparrowhawk (1 male), Chough (2), Raven (3), Crag Martin (50+) and Blue Rock Thrush (4).
