We got there early, and at first had no sign of the larks. But at 06:31, all at once, 15 males took off simultaneously and started singing their heads off. They are such awesome larks and it was very interesting to observe their communal courtship behaviour. Their mimicry is really amazing. One specific male was singing for more than an hour non-stop above our heads. During this period I identified 21 species in his reputation: Kestrel, Alpine Swift, Crested, Desert, Short-toed and Sky-larks, White Wagtail, Meadow, Long-billed and Tawny Pipits, Red-rumped Swallow, House Martin, Black-eared Wheatear, Prinia, Scrub Warbler, Tristram's Starling, House Sparrow, Linnet, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, and Corn Bunting!
Photography-wise we had very poor results. Sitting inside the hide was a total waste of time as the males cover huge distances chasing each other and didn't keep strict territories. I only got some record shots. At least this one is with nice spring colours:

On the ground:
The hills were covered in anemones and other flowers.
Other good birds in the area included a singing Eurasian Cuckoo, Black-eared and Finsch's Wheatears, and most other species mentioned by the calandras above.
