I tried the driving around slowly technique for the best part of 2 hours. Similar results. Fewer larks, linnets and butterflies than Tuesday. In the end I decided to head over to Charco del Palo again for a bit more sea-watching and just as I was about to up my speed (to between 15 and 20 kph on these unsurfaced roads) a single sandgrouse flew in front of the car and landed on a slope less than 30 metres away. I couldn't locate it on the ground though. That lifted my spirits some then 80 metres from joining the Teguise road I spotted a bustard walking across a field. I even got a couple of unsatisfying photos. There were probably two, because I lost track of the first and seconds later saw one flying. The location, distance and direction seemed wrong for it to be the same bird.

This might be of interest to anyone visiting soon. I'd heard but not seen Stone Curlew then driving back this p.m. I noticed one in the field with the light grey square structure on the junction of LZ-404 and LZ-405. Pics of that (there were two) might be slightly more satisfying.
