The little ringed plover (Charadrius dubius) | Youtube: Explore Croatia
Plant life is still a bit slow moving on Mallorca, but once the spring comes, they will race to become a splash of colour all over the island, with Crown Daisies and Common Poppies making an appearance alongside Chrysanthemum’s and Crown Vetch. Fields, open pastures, roadsides, garigue, and orchards will all have their own mix of beautiful flowers, and fragrances too. These will attract the pollinators, and soon, the butterflies will be on the wing, including Speckled Wood, Clouded Yellow and my favourite - the Swallowtail. Rosemary and Asphodels will attract the migrant Painted Lady butterfly, and the special plants on the island - the orchids, will be forming their groups in specific areas.
