Lesvos wildlife

I wanted a nice picture of the Black headed bunting, on our first trip here they posed right beside the car, but on my two trips with a camera they refused stubbornly to oblige so I was happy to get this image on my last but one day. the Spanish sparrow male was one of the many birds we saw harvesting the large numbers of caterpillars on the fields alongside the Kalloni salt pans. They all seemed to take their catches to the road to beat them to death and then parcel upn the remains to feed to a waiting chicks. The snail caught my eye because of its blue colouration beneath its skin.
