Saturday 11 May, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light W-SW wind, 27C: The Honey Buzzard passage is now in full flow with a slow build up on Thursday, some larger groups moving through on Friday, also a female Marsh Harrier, and today vast numbers with several 'kettles' of 100+ individuals seen during the morning and early afternoon. I couldn't manage any accurate counts as I spent most of the day moving between various Spanish first Communion events!

On Friday there was a good showing of orchids along the La Umbria walk, some shown below:

Trabut's Limodore Limodorum trabutianum

Woodcock Ophrys Ophrys scolopax

Bee Orchid Ophrys apifera
