Wildlife on Fuerteventura
This lizard found a nice spot for a sunbathe a couple of days ago:

While this kestrel put himself in the picture by landing on next door's roof:

and this must be the smallest gecko I've ever seen - less than 1" long:

a stinkbug making a statement by crawling over my trainers?

flocks of gulls heading inland again - more high winds due?

I spent a good 10 minutes watching these ants trying to manoeuvre a spider through a gap in the grout on my friend's terrace, before giving up and sprinkling ant powder on them!

Working in the garden today I came across loads of tiny geckos, must be their time. This little one wanted to take up residence in my sandal!

A word of warning, I had a meeting with a specialist on Lyme disease on Thursday and we were tracing different place we have been. When we mentioned the Canary Islands he said that all the rabbits in the Canary Islands are Lyme carriers and other wildlife could also be carriers. Just be warned and keep away from the rabbits so you don’t risk the bite from an infected tick, if you do get bitten there is typically a red bullseye rash so this is a red ring with a red spot in the centre, seek medical help immediately it is treatable with antibiotics and the sooner the better.
