Monday 02 July, mostly sunny, light E-SE wind, high of 30C: I joined Bob and his American guests for a late evening visit to the track that runs from opposite Venta Molino, Casares down to Secadero. Whilst waiting for them I saw an Alpine Swift above Gaucin - now a regular sighting here, particularly with the early morning and early evening Common/Pallid Swift flocks. We weren't disappointed and at about 2200hrs had some very good views of Red-necked Nightjar both in flight and sitting on the ground close by. Neither Bob nor I have seen this species up near Gaucin this summer - the past few years they have been regular visitors along the Camino de Gibraltar and even over the houses on the southern edge of the village around Calle del Pino; could be a result of increased human activity in the area?
