Sand, Clouds and Hills – Famarra Plain, Lanzarote

These pictures give a feel of the space and openess of the Famarra Plain, Lanzarote where I saw some of the best birds on the Island.

It was here I saw Houbara Bustard, Stone Curlews and the magnificent Cream-coloured Coursers. Although I never got a picture of one the plains were also home to large flocks of Short-toed Larks. The sand hills were covered in a variety of wildflowers, which I will blog about when I have identified them.
