Paul writes: If you think the UK has been hot of late then think again: on a recent photographic trip to northeast Spain temperatures peaked at 44°C. The aim of trip was to photograph sandgrouse, two species of which – Pin-tailed and Black-bellied – are present in the region. The height of summer, when water is at a premium, is the best time to photograph these enigmatic birds on their daily visits to drinking pools.
