Saturday 30 March, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, calm air-light N-NE wind, 15C: More heavy rain overnight with 22L/m2 falling between 2200hrs Friday and 0900hrs Saturday. The Blue Rock Thrush is still adding a touch of exotic song to the dawn chorus on the roofs of Calle Convento.

An afternoon walk along the Camino de Gibraltar from 1630-1800hrs produced the following: Griffon Vulture, Short-toed Eagle, Common Kestrel, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Woodchat Shrike (see photos), Grey Wagtail, Stonechat, Cetti's Warbler, Sardinian Warbler, Common Chiffchaff, Serin, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Cirl Bunting.

Also some nice flowers....including Star of Bethlehem Ornithogalum umbellatum and Barbary Nut Moraea sisyrinchium (the white morph pictured below is the first I've seen).
