|Ocellated Lizard enjoying the sun and shedding its skin|
Whilst having breakfast this morning we noticed an Ocellated Lizard crawl out from under our roof tiles and begin basking in the warm sunshine. It was also shedding its skin. We have known for some time that we have many of this large species on our property either living in drains or in the roof. In the garden a pair of Woodchat Shrikes are together again and let's hope they nest as well as last year.
|Bee-eater - one of the new colony|
|Female Red-backed Shrike|
Coming back from Olonzac later mornign two Black Kites were hunting over vineyards and a male Montagu's Harrier was over the garrigue. I checked the vineyards in the eveing and there are definitely about 4 pairs of Bee-eaters which have formed a new colony.
