Sunday 06 January, Gaucin, sunny, light-fresh NW wind, 16C, 1030-1130hrs: Today's breakfast sightings were a Blue Rock Thrush on the roof a nearby house and a male Black Redstart in the walnut tree. A visit to El Hacho wasn't very productive, mainly due to the gusting winds, but there was more activity along the tracks behind the petrol station and it was great to see the pink and white Almond blossom breaking out across the area. Highlights were 20+ Griffon Vulture, Song Thrush, two colourful male Serin, one in full song, 2x Black Redstart, a Chiffchaff sp., female Cirl Bunting and a flock of 20+ Chaffinch. Photo is a Meadow Pipit taking refuge from the wind in a leafless fig tree.
