Wednesday 16 November 2016, Gaucin, sunny, light SE wind, 18C

The settled, dry and relatively warm weather continues....

On the afternoon of Saturday 12 November there were 60 Wood Pigeon over La Umbria.

On Sunday 13 November an afternoon walk along the top section of the Camino de Gibraltar produced Griffon Vulture, Common Kestrel, Eurasian Sparrowhawk, Grey Heron, 5 Crag Martin with which was a single House Martin, 5 Song Thrush, European Robin, White Wagtail, Common Chiffchaff, 10+ Blackcap and Serin.

There was yet another Monarch butterfly, just behind the petrol station on Monday morning.

My first visit to the Rio Genal below the village in some time was pretty uneventful, not helped by heavy machinery digging out gravel from the river; just Grey Heron, Little Egret and a Common Buzzard of note.
