Wednesday 22 February
Just had a short email from my friend Dave Elliott-Binns re his group's visit to Maria today. Evidently Dave is training up a new scribe so I might get a more "formal" report at a later date.
However, along with the three photographs, Dave commented on the number of Rock Sparrows, over 100, seen on the power lines and the sighting of a first, male, Lesser Kestrel of the year. Able to refer Dave to our recent visit to Extremadura re the latter. Dave also stated that the weather was somewhat chilly!
