Tuesday 26 June, mainly overcast, occasional short sunny spells, still air-light SE wind, 30C: Another very humid day but I ventured out at 1830hrs along the Camino de Gibraltar just down to the, currently not working, water treatment plant. Clearly most birds had more sense as it was very quiet with just a few Common Swift, House Martin and the occasional Barn Swallow swooping overhead. Things perked up a bit around 1930hrs with two Booted Eagle passing over (probably the same pair that were displaying earlier in the afternoon above Calle del Pino) and in the far distance towards Sierra Crestellina there were three Bee-eater (there have been very few locally this summer) and a patrolling adult Bonelli's Eagle. Other than that there was White Wagtail, Serin, Goldfinch and Greenfinch. Cirl Bunting and Cetti's Warbler were heard.
