On Monday afternoon we went on a boat tour of the northern area of Alcudia Bay where there are some fantastic rock formations. there were goats on the near vertical cliffs as well as large brown and white eagle which I missed photographing . The boat had a glass bottom so enjoyed watching the fish. The first image is a 12-image stitched panorama taken from the boat of the town

We have visited two different beaches so far. First, images from Cala San Vincent - an ideallic village with 4 separate coves each with sandy beach. I borrowed Matt's GoPro for an underwater shot.
The second beach is at Peurto Pollensa on the opposite coast - miles of sandy beach and clear warm water to swim as far as you want.
Front view of Villa for Sally and Brian - booked through Villa Plus. Lovely garden and pool and Villa quite roomy though a bit dark inside and usual problems with appliances but company good at responding to requests - WiFi now fixed and hopefully washing machine dealt with today. also lot of very noisy Cockerels starting around 4.30 am!! Worth it for the garden etc

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

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.
