Wednesday 27 March, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, occasional rain showers, light W-NW wind, 13C: After 10L/m2 of rain overnight today was drier. A mid-morning appointment on the coast afforded the chance to check out the Estepona beach gull flock where there was nothing of note; 250+ Yellow-legged Gull and about 20 Black-headed Gull. In amongst the gulls, though, was a very flighty Little-ringed Plover. In the stream opposite Estepona football stadium was a pair of Canada Goose and on wasteground beside the 'Roca' roundabout, a Zitting Cisticola was singing. Earlier in Gaucin there was a pale morph Booted Eagle patrolling the southern fringes of the village - surprisingly, this was my first sighting of a Booted Eagle this Spring other than a couple passing through a week or so ago. Also in the village, a male Blue Rock Thrush was singing enthusiastically both from a chimney and whilst performing its impressive display flight.
