Friday 18 July 2014, Gaucin, sunny, light W-NW wind, 30C

An Iberian Chiffchaff, calling and singing in short bursts, visited the garden this afternoon, presumably already on its way southwards from its breeding grounds. Ann, who is on holiday in Gaucin, reported 100+ Griffon Vulture over the village mid-afternoon. Walking thorugh the mixed woodland just to the north of Gaucin at 1900hrs I noted Griffon Vulture, Booted Eagle, Great-spotted Woodpecker, a flock of 120+ Common Swift which included 2 Alpine Swift, Eurasian Nuthatch, Short-toed Treecreeper and Firecrest.
