Tuesday 25 February 2014, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light NW wind, 11C

An unscheduled visit to Estepona (never let a dog get hold of a varifocal glasses lens!) gave me an opportunity to check out the town beach gull flock; there were 150+ Yellow-legged Gull, 30+ Black-headed Gull, one Audouin's Gull (first I've seen on the beach here, I think), at sea 100+ Yellow-legged Gull and 25+ Lesser black-backed Gull, plus a handful of Northern Gannet. In the small park near the lighthouse there were 3 Chiffchaff sp., and a couple of Black Redstart; no Crag Martin this time, presumably they have headed up to their breeding areas.
