thanks, i will correct it!

Summer visitor to Europe? They live in southern Spain and Portugal all year round, spreading further north in summer. The Tagus river is about the northern winter limit in your area while here in the east it is around the Ebro, so we get them all the time. If you add this and your other birds to my "Birds of Iberia" mission it will help in defining where this imaginary line is and how it moves in the future. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7726...
