This very nice documentary about the unique ecosystem of Madeira is on BBC iPlayer until 22nd Feb (why do they do this? Seems to defeat the whole purpose) it gives a good idea of what Levadas are like for running along

another for the Cliff Bay - we stayed there in October. Restaurants are good value too (not significantly more expensive than the outside ones).

That Harris Hawk spent some time on my balcony in October picking at our sunlounger. Stopped my quiet coffee on the balcony rather abruptly.
