A few days in Extremadura, Spain, March 09

The summer visitors were just beginning to arrive whilst winter visitors such has Hen Harriers, Merlin and Golden Plovers were still present in small numbers on the steppe. Great and Little Bustards were still in winter flocks although a few individuals were beginning to display as were the Sandgrouse. The spring flowers increased day by day and by the time we left carpets of yellow, white and pink were appearing. A very special place. Click on photos for a slightly bigger image.
