Yesterday morning we were sitting in the garden in superb weather watching Woodchat Shrikes hunting from overhead wires, a Hoopoe probing our grassy areas and a family of Golden Orioles making their way across the hill. The male Oriole was constantly calling whilst the rest responded with their raucous cat-calls. Hoardes of juvenile Sardinian Warblers were feeding in our shrubs too. After a quick lunch we were off to Beziers and then home via Bristol.

Luckily we woke this morning to wonderful sunshine and a lush garden thanks to all the rain. Back to reality.
