Autumn Crocus or Meadow Saffron

We went to Olonzac Market first thing and on our return were just in time to see a Black Woodpecker fly low across our garden and then east towards the only trees of any size.  This an extraordinary record as the nearest breeding population is thought to be some distance from our community.

Golden Eagle

Plenty of migrants near the garden but much the same as previous days.  I took a drive out north of Minerve and stopped to admire the show of Autumn Crocus or Meadow Saffron at Boisset.  I took a drive up a stony track high in the hills and was rewarded with a splendid Golden Eagle and a Griffon Vulture.
