Wednesday 25 June 2014, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light W wind, 22C

After the unexpected rain (31mm) and cool temperature (16C) of yesterday, today was a little more summery. A walk from Estacion de Gaucin to the Buitreras gorge from 1030-1300hrs produced the following of note:

Griffon Vulture, Short-toed Eagle, Eurasian Sparrowhawk, Common Kestrel, Great-spotted Woodpecker, European Bee-eater, Common Kingfisher, Blue Rock Thrush, lots of Alpine Swift, Red-rumped Swallow, Crag Martin, Serin and Rock Bunting. Green Woodpecker and Golden Oriole were heard.

Not a bad place to be on a Wednesday morning!

There were quite a few Damselflies and Dragonflies around, too, including these two (I'm no expert so hope I'm right!):

Small Pincertail Onychogomphus forcipatus
