Urgh - big missed opportunity missed this week - the flamingos turned up on a different salt pond very close to the roadside and looking very photographable. Sadly by the time I returned with my camera they'd done one.
Other interesting sightings were:
a sphaero gcko running out of my luggage upon returning home - no idea which species or where it went; an excellent lesson in how geckos colonised the world; and
a red tailed hawk getting severely abused by a number of kingbirds overhead.
Things have been a little quiet of late but I'm building up to a couple of really interesting little expeditions.
