Hello all forummers!

Had the first snake observation of the year in my garden today. I only saw the tail end. Judging from the colour, it could well be the female of the pair of Macroprotodon brevis  (Culebra de cogulla) I observed last spring, so I´ll assume that it is. Welcome back, old friend!  :)

saludos

I heard a cuckoo last Thursday on the outskirts of Villamanrique and another today on The Aznalcollar to El Castillo de las Guardas road.
