It was a beautiful morning if a little cool initially. Obviously plenty of garrigue habitat and lots of paths through it. Looked promising.
Trouble was there was no singing! Despite giving it until 11,,,not a peep.
I'm pleased to report I DID manage to see it...and photograph it! I consider this a major achievement considering the bird/s were silent throughout (even though I say so myself!). Don't expect any picture postcards though. In a way they'll give you a more realistic idea of just how quick and elusive this bird is...when it's not singing!
Unfortunately the times it/they did appear for split seconds it was into the sun. Never mind.
