Tuesday 02 April, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light E-NE wind, 16C: Three or four small groups of 4-6 European Bee-eater passing through during the day and the 'local' Booted and Short-toed Eagles around. The west slope of El Hacho from 1830-1930hrs produced Griffon Vulture, Short-toed Eagle, 3 pale morph Booted Eagle, Common Kestrel, 2 Red-billed Chough, female Blue Roack Thrush, Stonechat and Sardinian Warbler; there were large numbers, 100+, of Swift sp. very high up and Peregrine, Thekla Lark and Cirl Bunting were heard. Again, no sign of the Southern Grey Shrike which I now think just uses the area as a stop-off on the way to its main wintering grounds further south.
