Our next accommodation was a family run B n B near Crespia. It was very remote, down a gravel track. The silence was only broken by the sound of Woodlarks, Golden Orioles, Bee-eaters, Hoopoes, Quail, Corn Buntings, Nightjars all in song. Amazing...

The bird highlight of our week was one morning when we were treated to a close fly by, by a pale phase Eleonora's Falcon, lit up in the morning sun. Great views in the bins but my little bridge camera just isnt up to it...
