Picos De Europa, 25-28.5.05

I've once more (and for the last time this year) been guiding in the Picos de Europa, once more with Matt Hobbs for the Company of Whales. Thanks to all on the trip for a great time. The highlights included finding a Wallcreeper nest-site more than 1,000 dolphins, nine Fin Whales (including three close to the ship together) and three Minke Whales on the last day. A fuller trip report should be appearing later at www.companyofwhales.co.uk
Meantime, this selection is from the Spanish part of the Biscay-Picos-Biscay sandwich which makes up the holiday.

I was wondering how my neighbour could save a fortune on her credit cards. Now I too have the secret.
