Monday 24 March 2014, Gaucin, sunny, light NW wind, 20C

A Common Cuckoo was calling from just South of Gaucin from 0730-0830hrs. At 1230hrs a group of 7 Black Kite passed high over the centre of the village (they were very high, I only picked them up because I was checking a lower, but still quite high, group of Griffon Vulture); at 1300hrs there was an unusual sight of 45 Great Cormorant high over the Rio Genal just South-East of Gaucin - they circled for a few minutes before heading upstream. During the afternoon there were at least 2 Short-toed Eagle and one pale morph Booted Eagle and a Common Kestrel around to the South of the village.
