The firsts dragonflies

“Boredom is nothing but the experience of a paralysis of our productive powers.”

– Eric Fromm

A brief post from a brief birding time. I saw the first Emperor a week ago, but today there were several at Tejina, together with some Scarlet dragonflies. It doesn’t seem a good year for dragonflies in the Canaries. Most of the ponds are dry, reedbeds are brown and it’s still cold. However, it’s possible to enjoy even the commonest species.

Talking about birds, a part from a little bittern that only offered poor views, nothing new has reached the island since my last visit. Turtle doves are already singing, and maybe that’s the best we can look at.
