Today off to the Parque del Retiro -
The Parqu del Retiro is a beautiful park in the Jeronimo area of Madrid. The Palace of Philipe IV once stood on the site.
House Sparrows everywhere .. lovely :)
and Spotless Starlings
Dozens of Terrapins..
which you could walk through
We sat and had lunch in the open air... but then it started to rain, so quickly moved to a table under an umbrella.. didn't come to much thankfully..
and walking back.. an obliging Iberian Green Woodpecker posed for us ...
