Extremadura 14-20 April 2015 : Photo-blog part 2

Extremadura 14-20 April 2015 : Photo-blog part 2 John Muddeman
22/09/2015
Part 2 of a photographic summary of a private 7-day tour to Extremadura during the peak spring period for just about all the wildlife there! This includes a few of the notable flowers, habitats and invertebrates seen, such as Yellow & Mirror Ophrys, Pink Butterfly and Tongue Orchids, Rhinoceros and Scarab Beetles and a 'mixed bag' of other fantastic wildlife.

A new less intensive and still highly successful version of the previous tour. An average of just one bear watch a day, mostly at dawn, resulted in a fine observation of a big black male on our very first attempt during a very difficult year! A wealth of other sightings included Southern Chamois, 3 Wallcreepers, Western Spectre and 61 species of butterflies, such as the endemic Spanish Argus and Chapman's Ringlet.
