Saw a lot in Roses last year too....
Fascinating to watch though (from a distance with binoculars and full NBC clothing....😀🤣 )
Yes we saw fir trees festooned with their nests from Madrid to the Algarve last year.

We saw them as far north as Brittany last year.
Not long before they arrive here I suppose!
