Thanks Clive, general consensus from other parties suggested it was a type of Cicada. I'm no expert but this sort of thing interests me. Thanks for your reply.

The Weather In Grazalema

‘Grazalema has the highest rainfall records in Spain’. This is a phrase that is commonly found on the internet, but without further explanation could be very off putting to the holiday maker! Mountains will always alter their local climate where-ever they are in the world, and this is no exception. Note that only a few … Continue reading The Weather In Grazalema

Hi Clive

Yes I think I have narrowed it down to one
"Others can infect several genera, such as the lesser broomrape (Orobanche)  O. minor, which lives on clover and other related Fabaceae."
as the one I have is on a bank which contains Bramble, Cana (bamboo) and Alfalfa, narrowing it down to the Alfalfa as it's
a member of the Fabaceae family.
But having said all that I could still be wrong.

Cheers

Hi there :)

It is one of the broomrapes.... Strange looking semi parasitic plants They tap in to the root systems of their host plants.... Each one has a specific plant so a good way to identify them is to also see what is growing close to them..
