Friday 18 January, Gaucin, cloudy, light rain, fresh W-NW wind, 13C: Been walking in the Castellar de la Frontera area for the last couple of days; lovely walks but little time for serious birding. The highlight was great close views of a group of 70 Griffon Vulture flying above, below and around us at the top of Cerro Gordo; also seen were several Common Buzzard, Grey Heron, Cattle Egret, Little Egret, Red-legged Partridge, Lesser Kestrel, Crested  Lark, Meadow Pipit, Song Thrush, large mixed flocks, 200+, of Chaffinch, Goldfinch and Linnet in the cotton fields, lots of Stonechat, Grey Wagtail, White Wagtail, Black Redstart, Chiffchaff sp., Sardinian Warbler, Blackcap, Corn Bunting and Cirl Bunting.
