|Blue Rock Thrush ~ Odd to see one perched alongside a reedbed.|
☀️22C Friday 10th May 2019 ~ The weather here can be quite fickle it seems and after yesterday's complete washout today was a beautiful 22C in cloudless skies. The morning walk was very pleasant with the usual Woodlarks, Cuckoo's, Hoopoe and Corn Buntings singing away along with the grating of many Eastern Subalpine Warblers, which are very common here.
