Wallcreeper Bilbao in Oktober

Hello

I am going to be in Bilbao for four days in late Oktober.
Is there the possibility that i can find a good Wallcreeper site within reasonable distance from Bilbao?

Other bird sites are also of great interest.

All information recieved With thanks :-)

Peter

Not sure what distance is reasonable but if you can make a drive of a little less than three hours it's well worth going to the cable car of Fuente D (Picos de Europa). I saw Wallcreeper, Alpine Accentor and Alpine Chough among others and there's a cafe at the top. Well worth the trip if you can make it!

Good luck,

Sorry, Peter, your friend is mistaken. I look back and find a brief diary comment for September 2014 but it doesn't say much - just that it's worth a visit.
Best wishes,
David

Hello Peter. I know where and how to see Wallcreeper at Fuente De - so can help give you details for that. What I don't know is whether they are there in October as I've always treated it as a summer site. But if others say they're there in October and you still need specific info as to where to look then let me know. Kind regards. Denis

Hello Denisparkes
I would be most greatfull for any information regarding the best sites for Wallcreeper at Fuente De! I have booked Three Nights at Hotel del Oso and intend (weather permitting) taking the gondol/cablecar up the 1800 meters to the top. I have heard that it is weather and time of year dependent when visiting so late in the year as October. If the conditions are Arctic then we will have to look for wall creeper lower Down in the Valleys.
Other birds of (special) interest are Snow Finch, Rock Bunting and Alpine Accentor. The main aim is to have a decent holiday! :-)
Thanks in advance for any tips you can give me . Peter.
