And coming soon as I still have over 300 shots to go through, a big report on the Madeira trip and seeing Zino's and Fea's Petrels at sea!!! A huge experience! Plus a bit on the trip to Asturias with the female partner, which is not a guarantee of anything.
20th May 2010 - Cabo de Gata
An obliging large Gecko was trying to get warm on the side of the hide. There was very little bird life in the shrub land, but overhead Barn and Red-rumped Swallow, House Martin and a single Common Swift passed by. We moved to the pool on the opposite side of the road to discover it had virtually dried up, so nothing there.
A reasonable day's birding - 35 spp.
