  2. Seen this evening 5-5.50 pm near El Toyo, Almeria Spain. Flying over high buildings …looking for possible warm roost prior to rain?

  4. Wallcreepers are on the move in November and March, and so then turn up in places not usually seen.

  6. Hi,
    I am wondering where I might see a Wallcreeper in mid-september. It looks like Garraf may be a better place to look than Cap de Cruz at this time of the year since they are still high on mountains.
    Thanks for any leads.
