Friday 08 March, Gaucin, cloudy, light-fresh SW wind, 14C: At last a day without rain, although another 16L/m2 fell between 1800hrs and 0900hrs Saturday, and some interesting migration.....around 1500hrs passing over the centre of the village were an Osprey, a Short-toed Eagle and 7 Black Kite; at 1745 a male Marsh Harrier passed through being closely attended by a local Sparrowhawk; also several groups of 3-4 Barn Swallow throughout the afternoon. With the SW tail-wind birds were moving through with some speed. There was also a Short-toed Eagle kicking around the south of the village most of the afternoon - probably one from the two local breeding pairs.
