Losa di Abbasanta Nuragh, Bronze Age tower

CATHY AND JIM INVITED US ON A BIKE TRIP to Sardinia a few years ago but we were on our way to Argentina or some such place.  Now, with Venice behind us and holidays in the Greek Isles ahead, Sardinia seemed like a good idea and after a false start at lodging in downtown Alghero we moved to Nidi della Poiana, Hawk’s Nest, in an olive grove south of town, much more to our liking. 


    Barumini Nuragh WHS

Sardinia is a kind of Italian backroad lacking the first-class attractions of the “boot;”  there is only one World Heritage site on the entire island, Barumini Nuragh.  The €10 entry charge put us off, though, and we had already visited other Bronze Age towers and medieval villages,.  But Connie found several birding spots that we could track down.  Unfortunately, the birds didn’t get the memo — it isn't the best time of year — and so far we have found only two new species.
