    Will probably do a short blog about these at some point, but for the time being here are a few photos from Saturday night. 🙂

    Really cool. Looks quite cold, any idea about air/water temperature? 

     

    Are those beech trees btw?

    About the origin Montseny, it could be the subspecies S. s. hispanica.

    @oaken yep pretty cold. Down at sea level it’s already spring and very green everywhere but on the way up Montseny the temperature dropped by 12 °C and there was a clear transition zone with it still seeming like winter on top.

    So air temp was less than 10 °C at an altidude of around 1200 m AMSL. Most of the trees are beech yep.

    @Thomas I think it might be yes – will check.

    @Jrp agreed!

    Also saw Bufo bufo, Rana temporaria, thousands of Salamandra larvae and brook trout so all in all a really nice few hours.
