Wildlife on Fuerteventura

and walking my dog at teatime I came across a Houbara, it crossed the track very casually in front of us and carried on its' way across the field. No pic, phone was buried in pocket because of a shower.
thought it was a fly at first sight but it moved more like a spider.

I use the app inaturalist (as opposed to inaturist 😃) that so far helped me Id every flora and fauna I have ever come across. You upload a photo with a location, it makes suggestions what it could be, and other members confirm your observation. Found out about it at a Cambridge uni lecture, the app is being used for scientific studies for helping monitor species and count numbers mapping distribution. So it's a win win for everyone.

thanks Maggie, I'll give it a try. I use a similar one, PlantNet, all the time.

The houbara was back today, obligingly crossing the lane in front of me when I had my phone in hand.

Shrek the Shrike is arriving regular as clockwork at 6pm to sit in the bougainvillea to await the arrival of the Hummingbird Hawkmoths for his supper:
