Thursday 06 March 2014, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light SE wind, 21C

A beautiful Spring day ideal for watching migrant raptors, apart from the change in wind direction which seems to have pushed them all westward! There are now 2 Short-toed Eagle patrolling their territory just south of the village and mid-afternoon there was a flock of 40+ House Martin in the same area. Barn Swallow numbers up to 6+ in front of Hotel Fructuosa and around lunchtime there was a Peregrine, visible from Calle Convento, swooping in and out of a small group of Griffon Vulture that were circling the summit of El Hacho.
