Saturday 29 September, Gaucin, cloudy, light W wind, intermittent light rain, 16C: Luckily Gaucin escaped the worst of the storms that passed through Andalucia over the last couple of days - it has been very wet, and cold, just 14C yesterday, but it wasn't the heaviest nor the most prolonged rain we have seen here. Watching from our terrace during a brief mid-afternoon break in the rain I saw 8 Griffon Vulture, 3 Booted Eagle (2 pale morph and 1 'mid-morph'), 1 Short-toed Eagle, a Green Woodpecker over the Calle Convento gardens, a bedraggled Chiffchaff in a walnut tree and a Red-rumped Swallow mixed in with a small flock of House Martin.
