Our hour was up and we had to leave the Sand Martins and head back to temporary Base Camp. On the way we saw the first cuckoo spit of the year - hidden within the bubbles is the larva of a Froghopper sp. It is on Tansey, a plant we used to see on the nature reserve back home but which seems to have been lost due to being outcompeted by encroaching scrub - will have to check it out next week.
The castle appears to have been built in stages or at least added to over the centuries. Most of it is in bad ruins.
Almost home we nearly ran over a Robin which had flitted into the side of the road which as it lifted past the car window was a male Redstart (181)...Wow!!!
Where to next? Back to familiar territory tomorrow.
In the meantime let us know how much culture is to be found in your outback.
