Friday 14 February 2014, Gaucin, mostly sunny am, mostly cloudy pm, fresh W wind, 15C

After two more rainy days in the cloud, with 15mm falling on Wednesday and 5mm on Thursday, today was at least dry. The highlight was a first Short-toed Eagle of the year, to the NE of the village over Camino de Avedin; also in the area during the late afternoon were several Griffon Vulture, Common Buzzard, Peregrine, Green Woodpecker and Hawfinch.

I was told today of a failed attack on a domestic cat by an Eagle Owl at a house along Camino de Avedin several days ago; coincidently, at 2315hrs today I heard a male Eagle Owl singing from the side of the castle facing Camino de Avedin, see photos below.
