Description

I found lots of wild rosemary growing on road cut cliffs, some small plants just a few inches tall, and others large shrubs like this one, about 4' wide and 3' tall. Some were in bloom, like this one, and the fragrance is lovely. It's the first time I've seen wild rosemary.

Description

The hills of Les Gavarres are mostly Cork Oak and Pine, and then I saw dozens of this tree. The spiky orange and red balls and the jagged leaves looked familiar, and I wonder if I've seen these trees in gardens in the US? Some were large shrubs, and others 20' tall trees, growing in rocky soil.

Description

The hills of Les Gavarres have thousands of Quercus suber or Cork Oak Trees. I'd never seen cork trees before, with their thick bark harvested for corks, and they look like an oak tree with exceptionally thick bark, often harvested for the first 4' or so. I wonder if the trees survive?

Here are four photos of Milvus milvus or the Red Kite, a spectacular raptor that hovers like other kites, and swoops down low over fields looking for prey. This is larger than other kites I've seen, up to 72 cm length and 165 cm wingspan, according to my field guide. The coloration is the spectacular part-- a red tail, white patches under its wings.
