It is such a lovely habitat for butterflies, bees, beetles and so close to home. People were working on the neighbouring fields preparing the ground for planting potatoes. I was welcome to wander around with the dog under the olive trees.
The word biodiversity is used by many as an all-purpose word for whatever they are trying to sell; often to cover up their complete insensitivity to the natural world surrounding them. Today I saw a small example of biodiversity, a quiet and rare feeling. The short walk was pleasantly topped with the Common Kestrel (probably snacking on whatever I was trying to photograph) and a swirl of hundreds of Griffon Vultures (Gyps fulvus) heading north-west.
