September/October 2012
After three years working on the house we took a month off in September for a different lifestyle – moving a Dutch sailing barge from England’s east coast to central France. On our return we were soon back in harness, working on the walls and installations for the final WC and sink, and maintaining the site, a never ending task. We get up early to watch the sun rise over the sea. (photo)
The weather stayed warm right through October. We were away for the main raptor migration but in October the garrigue was alive with juvenile sardinian warblers and dartford warblers. Other wildlife highlights included ring ousel and short toed eagle on 12 Oct, and 20 cranes flying south in perfect formation on the 22nd.
