Market Day

We went down to Olonzac market as usual on a Tuesday and got out quickly as it was crowded and getting hot already.  Getting back I sat in the shade in the garden.  The Woodchat Shrike was still on the wires but much closer today.

 Butterflies were obvious again but a fantastic Southern White Admiral was an addition as it glided across the garden.

There is a dearth of birds at the moment but each day species which must be early migrants are seen.  Bonelli's Warbler, Whitethroat and Spotted Flycatcher have all passed through.  Today a juvenile Crossbill called from one of our pines and I have to say that was a bit more of a surprise.
