I went on my path from Braña de Mumián towards El Coto de Buenamadre. A griffon vulture overflew me. I listened a couple of stonechats.

The second part ot the path was going down by a beech forest. The branches were full of beechnuts. Some beechnuts were opened beside the always visible stools of a small carnivore.

Could be casuality because I saw more stools without beechnuts, only these plum or cherry seeds.

In the low ligth of the fores I saw a couple of bullfinchs. The male let us seen him more but he male showed herself less.

Flora had a lot of variety but in a beech grove nothing better than a centenary beech tree, still alive, but with his hollow trunk converted in a giant anthill.
