Saturday 24 August 2013, Gaucin, sunny, light S-SE wind, 32C

The male Eagle Owl was back again in the Calle Convento/Calle del Pino area, calling for 15min from 0215hrs, occasionally 'duetting' with a Tawny Owl!  At 0900hrs there were two male Golden Oriole along the Arroyo del Moro track down towards the Rio Genal and driving back up at 1030hrs the first Honey Buzzard of the day. After yesterday's migration excitement today was a little quieter with sightings during the afternoon as follows:

1540hrs: 18 Black Kite, 6 Honey Buzzard
1740hrs: 2 Honey Buzzard
1805hrs: 1 Honey Buzzard

For most of the afternoon there were a couple of pale morph and one intermediate morph Booted Eagle around, also a beautifully marked adult Short-toed Eagle.

A nice surprise was a 'kettle' of 90+ Black Kite that was building up just to the SW of the village at 2115hrs despite the rapidly fading light.
