Monday was our day off, so we decided to make a one-day trip to Morella, a medieval village about two hours driving from Riet Vell. Before departing Ihad been a short time in the hide and seen a Water Rail and the typical herons.

We arrived at Morella at aproximately 11:00 AM and immediately noticed the Red-Billed Choughs that lived in the village.
We visited two museums that morning. The first one about dinosaurs (very interesting) and the second one about the popular celebrations that are hold there every six years (sexenni).

After visiting this two museums we stopped for lunch outside the walls of the city. Several Griffon Vultures showed and also a pale Booted Eagle, I made some pictures but they aren't very good.

The afternoon we had planned to go to the castle, built in times of the arabs and reformed and expanded through the ages. The visit to the castle is really worth it.  Once on the top, with a really impressive view of the village and the surroundings another group of Griffon Vultures showed, but in the middle I saw a smaller, quicker bird. It was a Peregrine Falcon.

I really recommend a trip to Morella (Comunitat Valenciana) to everyone who stays nearby at the coast or who likes old villages and castles.
