Birds in Majorca One

It is always difficult taking bird images when on a family holiday but here are a few that 'posed' at the right time. the Sardinian Warbler is a very smart birds with black cap and red surround to eye. Today from a cafe in Cala Sant vincent saw a single RedKite flying with a group of about 8 Raptors still to be IDed. The Great Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) is a very smart bird seen flying in alcudia Bay along with a Yellow Legged Gull

Majorca: Our Home for a Week

Matt, Ellie, Sadie, Meredith and myself are staying in this property near Pollensa. Beautiful garden and interesting though noisy surrounds - the frogs croak a lot, dogs bark and cockerels crow throughout the 24 hours! Off to the beach this morning as it is already warm.

Final Macro from Greece

 These were taken on our last day in Alonnisos and I think show an improvement on my first efforts with all the practice over the week.

Cats in the Old Town Alonissos Greece

A great variety of cats entertained us during our walk round the Old Town - this time in sunnier conditions on our last day in Alonnisos. There were plenty of battle scars from battles for supremacy. We were told the cat on the welcome mat was the Top Cat - certainly no other cats came very near.

Poppies in an Olive Grove, Alonissos Greece

Our sixth day in Alonissos started overcast and by the end of the morning heavy rain arrived. The soft light conditions suited the poppies that we found in one olive grove - not quite the masses of blooms that would have been there in April/early May but enough to keep us busy for an hour or so.
