Friday 21 June, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light E-SE wind, 26C: A morning visit to the west slope of El Hacho/Sierra Espartina produced 10 Griffon Vulture, Short-toed Eagle, Booted Eagle (2 pale morph and 1 dark morph) and a Peregrine but no sign of the Honey Buzzard seen on Monday. Passerines were in short supply other than Sardinian Warbler and Stonechat (of which there were several recently-fledged juveniles around) which seemed odd given the number of small flies plaguing the area! There were quite a few butterflies on the wing including Swallowtail, Cleopatra, Spanish Marbled White and Spanish Gatekeeper.
