Tuesday 16 April, Gaucin, sunny, calm air-light SE wind, 23C: Early morning (dog) walks along the Camino de Avedin the last couple of days produced dark morph Booted Eagle, Great-spotted Woodpecker, 2 Red-rumped Swallow in amongst a House Martin flock (maybe the pair that bred at the end of the track last year?), Eurasian Nuthatch, Firecrest and Crested Tit; both Green Woodpecker and Bonelli's Warbler were heard. Today there was some visible migration with 17 Black Kite and 12 White Stork passing to the east of El Hacho at 1400hrs, then 30 Black Kite low over the same area at 1430hrs. All of these birds seemed to be struggling to get any height to the point where the storks started heading some way SE, presumably to get some lift from the headwind.
