Made it back...eventually!

Finally got back to blighty Thursday morning. Had a relaxing time in Extremadura and saw some great birds...more details to follow.

Easter update

Just a note to inform my growing number of followers...? No seriously, if you read my ramblings I hope you find them interesting and maybe even amusing. Weather still dodgy, typical England. Took advantage of my enforced lay-off and peedled down to Suffolk to connect with the LESSER KESTREL. Kept us waiting for a good hour but showed well if distantly eventually. More colourful and dainty than "our" bird. BIG tick!
We've decided to go ahead with our holiday to Spain, Louise has earned it even if I haven't! Hope the sun will be the tonic I need? We're having five days in Madrid then a week in Extremadura based at El Recuerdo near Trujillo. It's owned by Martin Kelsey, a birder, now there's a shock! Some of you may have stayed there. Just hope I've got the energy to fully enjoy it (violins!).
N.B No more posts until at least the 18th. I will post a trip report. Bustards!!
