Thursday 27 February 2014, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light NW wind, 16C

Warm out of the wind. A good day for raptors with the following all viewed over the Genal valley from Camino de Avedin: 20+ Griffon Vulture, 6x Short-toed Eagle, Peregrine, Common Buzzard, Eurasian Sparrowhawk and Common Kestrel; also a probable female Marsh Harrier but it was too high for a positive ID. Over the west slope of El Hacho from 1700-1800hrs there were 10+ Griffon Vulture, 2x adult Egyptian Vulture, 2x Peregrine, Thekla Lark and a flock of 100+ Goldfinch.

During the past few days there have been a number of butterflies around including Large Tortoiseshell, Spanish Festoon, Cleopatra and Small Copper.
