Sardinia Day2 Asinara Island

Our first full day was spent on Asinara Island which used to hold a top security prison but since 1997 has been a designated Nature Reserve. The scenery is spectacular and hundreds of deserted buildings that would be a great location for general photography. However the wildlife was also good with two new bird species - Barbary Partridge and Cirl Bunting and a hummingbird Hawkmoth.  Several new Dragonflies - Banded Groundling (female), Dark Spreadwing, Lesser Emperor and Broad Scarlet. also excellent views of the Violet Dropwing male and female and Black-tailed Skimmers.
