Another great walk with spectacular scenery.
Thorn Apples are also called Datura or in spanish Hieba del Diablo translated means Herb of the devil. They are poisonous and related to deadly nightshade.
Although poisonous they are very pretty, and found in waste ground in Tenerife.

Yesterday I caught a glimpse of two big birds flying past the patio window, by the time I got my camera they were flying away from me and I only managed to capture one, I think they were osprey’s. If anyone knows different let me know.
You get an idea of the size compared to the hill and the buildings.
I cropped these but they are not very clear.
