Flora&Fauna Garden Life in Spain Spanish countryside

Update Summer 2011.

The autovia between Arboleas and La Alfoquia is now open.
The canaries are still in moult, but signs that the summer heat is ebbing are apparent, there is, however, usually a final hot blast!
Last Sunday lunchtime the dog was barking and I was rather distracted, as we had lunch guests, but I went outside to investigate, there was a large snake, on the outside of the canary cage; I ran back into the house to get others to look, but it had slithered away very quickly, so no photo. I have noticed that the sparrows spend a lot of time there, picking up discarded seed, so that is what may have attracted the snake, I had lost a couple of chicks inexplicably, months ago.
