Today the rain started gently around 6am, I let the hens out of the roost , they appeared rather reluctantly, they spent most of their time sheltering.
These swallows shaking the rain off their feathers and preening, their long migration South imminent.
Yesterday, we walked to the restaurant El Castillo for lunch, a first since the hotter months. I took my camera with the telephoto (75-300 mm) lens on, hoping for shots of eagles. It was interesting to see the plants, that had been damaged by the “gota fria” last September, were still hanging on and even sprouting.
At the end of August we had experienced terrific thunder storms heralding the end of the extreme heat of summer, the rambla had been damaged further by the heavy rain and there were still deep channels, soft mud and pools, which made walking difficult.
We didn’t see any eagles.
