Tuesday 22 December 2015, Gaucin, sunny, light SE wind, 18C

After a few days away in an unseasonably warm, but mostly overcast, UK nothing much has changed here with clear skies predominating and temperatures pushing 20C.

A visit to the west slope of El Hacho mountain from 1600-1730hrs produced a 'first' for the village for me, a Dunnock! Only occurring here as a scarce winter visitor, they are normally seen in more remote mountain areas found towards Ronda. Also seen were Griffon Vulture, Eurasian Sparrowhawk, Common Kestrel, Southern Grey Shrike, Stonechat, 10+ Black Redstart, 5+ Song Thrush (one in full song), Blue Rock Thrush, Meadow Pipit, Sardinian Warbler, Dartford Warbler (one heard), Blackcap, Serin and Cirl Bunting.
