A pair of magpies have made their home in one of the olive trees and come and sit on donkeys back. I think they're taking her winter coat as nest material, or maybe they're just making friends. She seems to quite like the attention ;-)
(sorry about the quality of the two photos above, they were taken from a distance as video. I thought you'd like to see them though).
Oh, and the orb weaver spiders are early and stringing their huge silvery webs between plants. For an arachnophobe the first morning walk around the reserve is a bit daunting as it's too easy to walk through a web - eek!
