Tuesday 08 December 2015, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, calm air-light SE wind, 17C

A change in the weather since Sunday has seen the return of a few clouds and the temperature dropping a couple of degrees but no sign of any rain; some nice sunrises, too:
Sunrise over Sierras Bermeja and Crestellina
A morning walk along the 'Las Pilas' track above Benarraba and Algatocin produced 15 Griffon Vulture, Eurasian Jay, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Meadow Pipit, White Wagtail, Song Thrush, Blue Rock Thrush, European Robin, Short-toed Treecreeper, Sardinian Warbler, Blackcap, Common Chiffchaff, Hawfinch, and some interesting small mixed flocks that held Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Serin, Siskin, Cirl Bunting and Rock Bunting.

Blue Rock Thrush - diagnostic bill visible even at 50m in the gloom!

Siskin - what a lovely species!
