Pyramidal Orchids

Pyramidal Orchids (Anacamptis pyramidalis) found during "Common Bird Census" (CAC) south of Loulé this week. Lots of migrants have been still on their way - Pied- and Spotted Flycatcher, Willow Warbler, Melodious Warbler, Northern Wheatears, Common Redstarts, Golden Orioles, Wrynecks, and as a personal highlight - 2 Bonelli's Watblers found singing near Quinta do Lago - a scarce migrant, never had one in spring and singing neither. They only breed further up in the country or in the mountains of Spain (I remember them from Grazalema).
