Tenerife - preamble

I've just come back from four days on Tenerife. Well, more like three and a half, but it's not a large island and I fitted a lot in. The aim was a bit of warmth after a hard few weeks, as you know I get withdrawal symptoms if I don't go abroad at least once a month. And of course the lure of what I thought were four new Western Palearctic birds, but turned out I had no idea what I was talking about and it was six. The most obvious one was Berthelot's Pipit, which were incredibly numerous in pretty much any piece of scrubby habitat. A full trip report is underway, replete with photos. Bet you can't wait...
