Saturday 28 July, sunny, light-fresh E wind, 30C: A warm day that just got hotter as it went on - driving down to the coast at 1800hrs it reached 34C a couple of km below Gaucin and was still 27C at 2300hrs. A short mid-morning visit to the Siete Pilas area on the road towards Estacion Cortes produced the following of note: Griffon Vulture, 2x Short-toed Eagle (great views as they passed by together just overhead), Common Buzzard, 2x Common Kestrel, Woodchat Shrike, Common, Pallid and Alpine Swift, Barn Swallow, Woodlark, Stonechat, Sardinian Warbler and Bonelli's Warbler. There seemed to be Woodchat Shrike on every other fencepost or bush (an adult and one of the many juveniles in photos).
