This 10 April 2016 photo shows some beautiful flowers near Jaraicejo village in Extremadura in Spain.
A collared dove calls.
A woodchat shrike in a holly oak tree.
Griffon vultures circle overhead.
Long-headed poppy flowers.
Two great tits.
Bee-eaters are back from their spring migration.
A crested lark on the footpath.
In the afternoon, we walked a little further, towards the Almonte river.
Along a dirt road grew these beautiful orchid flowers: sawfly orchid.
Their usual colour is pinkish, but some flowers are white.
We saw a flock of about a hundred goldfinches.
When we had arrived back, there was this azure-winged magpie.
And this hoopoe, looking for food in the soil.
And these holly oaks.
Stay tuned, as more blog posts, including photos, from Extremadura will appear on this blog.
