Sunday 05 September - afternoon update. Light SE wind.
Not much birding done today but..........whilst painting a door in my courtyard I heard Bee-eaters flying over, I looked skyward and saw a spiralling flock some 44 Honey Buzzards! This led to an unscheduled break from painting and from 1:30 to 3:30 this is what went over:

Honey Buzzard 331
Griffon Vulture 8
Egyptian Vulture 1
Marsh harrier 4
Common Buzzard 2
Booted Eagle 2 (probably locals and not passing migrants)

2 groups of Bee-eaters neither of which could I locate in the hazy sky.
Ah well back to painting!!!!

Also seen....
1800hrs: 81 Honey buzzard passing over centre of Gaucin (Paul)
1930hrs: 15 Black kite over village (Paul).
