Sunday 20 January, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, occasional light rain, fresh W-NW wind, 9C: With the change in the weather it's no longer so Spring-like, despite there being two House Martin in Sabinillas this morning (like those in Manilva last week, they are probably part of the small coastal over-wintering population). There was a male Sparrowhawk around the south of Gaucin this morning but quiet apart from that. I saw a very pale bird, presuambly a House Sparrow, a couple of days ago in with the local House Sparrows as they prepared to roost in the Calle del Pino/Calle Convento gardens but haven't been able to pick it up since; I'll keep looking just in case it's something interesting!

I meant to post this photo of a prehistoric tomb (no reliable estimate of age; possibly bronze age?), located near to Castellar de la Frontera, that we saw on our walk on Friday. There are a few examples of these anthropomorphic depressions in the rock in the surrounding areas but these are the closest I know to Gaucin:
