A photo-blog plus a few notes from a recent long weekend excursion to Lanzarote, where a 2-day pelagic trip was planned to take us out to the Banco de la Concepción to look for seabirds and cetaceans at possibly one of the most accessible marine hot-spots in European waters.

Sightings during a couple of recent trips to this remarkable mountain area of the eastern Sierra Morena, including the critically endangered Iberian Lynx, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Eurasian Black Vulture, Black-shouldered Kite and Black Wheatear amongst plenty of others. The La Mancha lakes en route were rich in birds too, including White-headed Duck and, surprisingly for December, Whiskered Terns!
