After visiting the Pyrenees as a teenager and Extremadura some years ago, the author decided to visit The Picos de Europa, an area renowned for butterflies and interesting mountain birds and plants. The visit was planned to coincide with the highest emergence of butterflies and arranged a day out with Teresa Farino, a local wildlife expert.

Over the two week period of the holiday the author made several trips out along the roads from the town of Potes. The walk above the village and each of the four main routes out of Potes with stops made along each are described in detail on the DVD, showing the butterflies and other wildlife encountered on these routes. The DVD has been produced in this way to show fellow travellers what can be viewed on each route should time be a limiting factor. Please bear in mind that the author followed certain routes two or three times but with favourable weather conditions most of the wildlife described on each route could be encountered on one journey along each.

Specialities that were encountered and filmed were high alpine birds such as Alpine Accentor, Alpine Chough, Snowfinch and Wallcreeper. Butterflies that were filmed included: Rosy Grizzled Skipper, Large Chequered Skipper, Apollo, Berger's Clouded Yellow, Spanish Purple Hairstreak, False Ilex Hairstreak, Scarce Copper, Lang's Short-tailed Blue, Geranium Bronze, Dusky Large Blue, Spanish Chalkhill Blue, Gavarnie Blue, Southern White Admiral, Iberian Heath Fritillary, Provencal Fritillary, Meadow Fritillary, Spanish Heath, Spanish Gatekeeper, Dusky Meadow Brown, Western Brassy Ringlet, The endemic Chapman's Ringlet, Iberian Marbled White and Esper's Marbled White plus many more.

This production was filmed in broadcast quality digital format using a Canon XL-H1 High Definition video camera. The footage has been captured onto two DVD's showing approximately 130 minutes of high-quality uncompressed digital video with complete menu accessed using your DVD player's remote. The two discs include a full narrative which is not included on the trailer.
