Monday 12 August 2013, Gaucin, mostly sunny, calm air-light E-SE wind, 31C

After the excitement of last week's Black Kite movement the past few days have been very quiet with not a single migrating raptor to be seen during frequent scans of the skies above the village. There have been some signs of the Summer/Autumn transition with occasional small groups of European Bee-eater around, a couple of calling Chiffchaff sp. in the garden and a noticeable drop in Swift numbers. There have been one or two Scarce Swallowtail butterflies around which is always a welcome sight.
