Saturday 04 August, sunny, calm-light W wind, 34C: Autumn raptor migration appears to be well underway with reports of both Black Kite and early Honey Buzzard movements from around Andalucia. I saw my first returning group of Black Kite today with about 20 passing N-S over Gaucin at 1530hrs and then a couple of singles later in the afternoon. There are still quite a few House Martin around but Swift numbers are down with only about 20 or so Common Swift over Calle Convento/Calle del Pino in the late evening - although they were joined by one Alpine Swift tonight; also 30 noisy Bee-eater heading south at 2100hrs.
