Friday 26 August 2016, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light SE wind, 30C

A pre-breakfast walk around La Umbria produced Griffon Vulture, Booted Eagle, 2 Turtle Dove, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Firecrest, Bonelli's Warbler, one, possibly two Iberian Chiffchaff still singing, and in one pine tree, Short-toed Treecreeper, Spotted Flycatcher, Crested Tit and Coal Tit.

Whilst I've been out elsewhere the last couple of mornings a Eurasian Hoopoe has been heard (Janys) and seen (Chris D) at the top of the Camino de Gibraltar.

On Thursday Tim B reported three Red-rumped Swallow at the far end of El Hacho, plus a flock of 20 Blue Tits; at 1500hrs 30 Honey Buzzard low over the village, that eventually went very high and then peeled off one by one, southwards and one Black Kite at Jimena in the afternoon.
