Greetings SueMac and All,
Truly running through the rambla?
Given the gloomy forecast for forest fires here on the Ib. Pen. over the coming years* - at least till there's not much left to burn except scrub - it looks like tortuga mora's days are numbered, so I'd take Nick's advice and become an expert on the subject.
Can just see the headlines: iberianature forum expropriates yet another gold course in Andalusia and converts it into a tortoise sanctuary.
Advantage of filming tortoises is that you get plenty of time to go back 'ome, rummage 'round for the camera, take out the old roll of film, look for a new one, (yes, some of us still use cameras from the last century) stroll calmly back to where you left the t. and get it from any angle before it heads off into the distance at a rate of ... (if it were a turtle, knots).
*Which, along with gold courses, etc. all help to speed up the "natural" process of desertification
Unlike using bait to get snapshots of badgers, which is a no-no, I'm sure no-one will object to you using the odd lettuce leaf to make your t. stick her/his/its 'ead out of the shell and give us all a close-up of its gnashers!
