Plain sailing


Quail, Coturnix coturnix.

A Quail sat in the track in my car headlights just before dawn


Bee-eater, Merops apiaster.

The Bee-eaters in front of the hide were bright and good afternoon entertainment

Little Owl

Little Owls, Athene noctua.

The Little Owl antics usually steal the show.

Thekla Lark

Thekla Lark, Galerida theklae

Singing Thekla Lark was an added bonus from the Hoopoe hide. 

Monty’s Harrier

Montagu’s Harrier, Circus pygargus.

Poppy landscape

Poppy Landscape, Lleida.

Now that’s not bad for a (very early) morning or two out on the plains of Lleida.
