Stream in the Summer Mediterranean Forest

Serra da Malcata
Recordist: Melissa Pons
Habitat: Mixed Mediterranean Forest
Recommended Charity: Rewilding Portugal

Just by the Bazágueda River, a shallow and light reflecting stream, surrounded by Mediterranean forest in a sunny afternoon, made fresh by the trees, some with trunks peeling, causing sounds like a door, moving and smoothly colliding. All was quiet but there was a certainty of being watched. There were butterflies and metallic blue dragonflies dancing in pairs over the clear water and so relaxing one could easily sleep leaning against a big tree trunk, sitting on a sturdy root.
