Hello all,
Having made a start on cutting down the grass and weeds that had turned our land into a jungle before we actually moved, we now have a selection of visiting wildlife :-/
As well as the fox, the boar, frogs & news and our resident pair of swallows, we have a Poupa. Very beautiful with an amazing crest
Just wanted to share 🙂

They are beautiful, aren't they. We regularly have one visit, and perhaps it's not always the same one, because the other day we were lucky enough to be visited by a pair - amazing. And I had always thought they were mythical creatures of Greek classics!
