      ... One day we took a bus to Estrada, along the coast and then walked back to Carillo, birdwatching en route. It was a lovely walk and we saw plenty of birds by the river. We find now that it is becoming more difficult to find birds that we haven't seen previously but we still enjoy seeing anything that honours us with it's presence!

      ... looks at a proportion of the fruit in a block and says what size the fruit will be when it is harvested (in around four weeks time!). This helps the farm with their planning as they know roughly what fruit they will have available and when. In the afternoon I went to watch a few presentations.
