Thursday 21 March, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light W wind,14C: First day of Spring and, though cool, there was no rain. Driving back from the coast at about 1030hrs the two Goshawk were flying along the Genal valley on the Casares side of the river bridge and there were a couple of Short-toed Eagle around, too. Throughout the day there were at least two, sometimes three Short-toed Eagle around the south of the village and four flew through at height mid-morning. Swift sp. numbers are up to 30+ with at least one pair of Pallid and there were two male Blue Rock Thrush on the roofs around Calle Convento/Calle del Pino during late morning, one in full song; it's the first time I've seen them singing and displaying so openly within the populated parts of the village.
