Tuesday 20 April, cloudy am, sunny pm, little or no wind. A day out and about! Along the Rio Genal near the bridge on the Manilva-Gaucin road, 0900hrs: Golden Oriole (male singing and gleaning insects from Eucalyptus trees), several Cetti's warblers, Nightingales, Cirl Bunting, Jay, Long-tailed tit. El Secadero, on the river west of Casares, 1100hrs: Short-toed eagle, Griffon vulture, fantastic close-up views of Bee-eaters, Wryneck heard but not seen, Whitethroat (singing male), many Woodchat shrike, Thekla lark. San Martin de Tesorillo, 1300hrs: Crested lark, Grey heron, Red-rumped swallow around the iron bridge. On a sad note, I found a recently dead European Nightjar on the Gaucin-Manilva road.
