A Griffon Vulture has recently turned up in a residential area in Benissa, in the Northern Costa Blanca. Rosemary says “It was very exciting to see this fabulous bird just sitting on the balustrade of the home of a German lady I know. She lives on one of the highest hills around Benissa which is probably why ‘Hugo’ (the name she has given him) feels at home on his perch. She has been feeding him for a couple of days and both he and her two cats are used to each other now! I actually got to hand him some food, with the aid of a kebab stick. It was a very special moment! I do hope the Griffon will find its way and leave soon. Otherwise there may be a problem with it.”
