Monday 26 August 2013, Gaucin, misty am, sunny pm, light W-SW wind, 28C

A change in the wind direction and a 4C drop in temperature and all of a sudden it feels like autumn is just around the corner. We woke to a 'white-out' mist engulfing the village and the autumnal feel was added to by the presence of a Blue Rock Thrush on a roof in Calle del Pino and a European Robin in full song; also a couple of Honey Buzzard at around 1030hrs. It wasn't until mid-day that the mist lifted and I could look for migrating raptors. Nothing much to report until late afternoon when I noted the following:
1700hrs: 21 Honey Buzzard and 1 Black Kite
1715hrs: 48 Honey Buzzard
1900hrs: 7 Honey Buzzard, 1 Black Kite, 2 Common Buzzard and 1 adult female/juvenile Montagu's Harrier
