Thursday 15 November, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light E-SE wind, 19C: Another lovely warm day although the next wet weather system is due tonight and will last for two or three days. Woke to a Blackbird in full song then spent a couple of hours from 1000-1200hrs checking the fields along the Gaucin-El Colmenar road hoping for some Brambling with the Chaffinch; there weren't any but I did see 30+ Griffon Vulture, Common Buzzard, Common Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Song Thrush, a group of 40+ Crag Martin, amongst which was a late House Martin, Thekla Lark, Meadow Pipit, White Wagtail, Stonechat, Black Redstart, Sardinian Warbler, 20+ Blackcap, Greenfinch and Chaffinch. Heard both Green Woodpecker and Great-spotted Woodpecker with the latter also drumming. On the drive back to Gaucin the Southern Grey Shrike was showing well on top of a tree below El Hacho.
