There was little in the way of birding on a recent holiday apart from nuthatches with French accents. Fortunately, there was plenty of sunshine and lots of butterflies, moths, crickets and lizards to enjoy. I managed, with mixed success, to track this humming-bird hawk-moth. Also recorded were a number of butterflies which were new to me including, cardinal, lesser purple emperor; meadow fritillary, smoky copper and a few other fritillaries and lycaenids that still need identifying.

That's a lot of humming! Saw LPE and MF in the Picos in 2006.
