Saw the first dragon fly of the year - such lovely insects.. We get the red ones, blue ones and the sort of golden yellow ones.

Yes, they are! We get a gang of Azul Magpies sweeping through in the morning and early evening.

We have some of the bumblebees with the white bottoms. They love the rosemary flowers in the garden. I have noticed that the wasps have started appearing too..

I had to shoo a Violet Carpenter Bee out the house 3 times yesterday. They're rather intimidating!

Very cute.

I found a poor little dead shrew a few weeks back. Poor thing!

Saw a Jay on the way up the hill yesterday.

We have this weird and wonderful flower that has popped out of the gravel - I don't know what it's called, so I call it a Portuguese bluebell.

Some fantastic photos!

We have a new visitor to our garden: a little Serin, which sits in our olive tree and sings (well squawks) its little heart out. Fascinating little bird.

From her photo, she looks very alert and interested in what's going on around her, even if a little unsure of herself. Good to hear she's settling down.
