Bit of a cheat with this post as it's general scenery shots from the holiday so far. I'll be spending the day in Verona tomorrow so the next post may be similarly themed. All of these were taken on my mobile phone so please forgive the distortion and vignetting.

As predicted yesterday, today was pretty much a non-photographing day. I popped outside briefly but only got shots of another Hummingbird Hawk-Moth and a Kestrel. A male Redstart and a Firecrest was also nice to see (will post pics at a later date if I get any which are less awful). Here's some of today's pics along with some from yesterday. The large bird of prey is a Black Kite.

Another great day, and probably the last with half decent weather for a while. I spent pretty much all day out with the camera and saw more of the same; the only new species of interest was a medium sized (unidentified due to distance) Falcon. Here's the pics of Butterflies and Moths. There's some of birds too but I'll post them tomorrow as it'll probably be an indoors day and I want enough content for a blog post every day! The Hummingbird Hawk-Moths and Swallowtails were stunning; I hope to get some better shots of these before heading back to the UK.

What a brilliant day. I climbed up a mountain today and saw more than I had anticipated... here's some of the pics:
Also please forgive these posts being short, I'm doing it all from my mobile phone! I'm transferring my pics from my DSLR via a micro USB to USB cable and the whole process is rather laborious! Ahh well, it gives me something to do whilst enjoying my cocktails... :)

I had a quick look along the lower section of the River Coly on my way home. I paid particular attention to my sense of hearing and was led to these...:

Here's another pic of one of the Robins before they left for good:
And here's the pair of Tufted Duck which put in a brief appearance at the Seaton Marshes Lagoon. Patch lifer for me (yes really):
