We travelled...

...across to the North West of Fuerteventura to El Cotillo. A very pleasant small town, popular with surfers. 

After a couple of hours on the beach, we were heading back for some lunch when we were suddenly surrounded by a sizeable pack of Barbary ground squirrels. 

These seemingly attractive posers (see extras) are pests all over the island, after two of them were imported as pets from the African mainland, in the 1960s, and were released into the wild by their owners.
