Extremedura 6-10 April 2011

Full trip report and sightings to come, here are a few images to look at until I upload more. Martin

Griffon Vulture MJMcGill

Vagrant Emperor MJMcGill
I thought the mass early emergence was local Lesser Emperors but looking at the images at home it would seem that the thousands of dragonflies seen were all Vagrant Emperors, as the names suggests they are part of an invasion to Europe. I had only seen a few dragonflies in Monfrague at this time of year before,  we saw 1000,s this time.

Sand Martins MJMcGill

Corn Bunting MJMcGill
Delightfully common.
