31st August 2012 - Gaucin

After last night's horrendous fires stretching from just north of Malaga to the outskirts of Marbella, Gaucin was enshrouded in thick clouds of smoke early this morning. We could smell the fire throughout the night, the full moon was a blood red and a covering of ash covered our cars and houses.

We drove from Gaucin at 7am for a shopping trip to Gibraltar and Soto Grande. On the way back we saw 75 Honey Buzzards in various size flocks.

Throughout the afternoon over Gaucin we saw a trickle of Honey Buzzards, a couple of Common Buzzards, Booted Eagles and at 6pm a Bonelli's Eagle joined a flock of 8 Honey Buzzards over the house.
