Thursday 10 April 2014, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, calm air-light SE wind, 22C

A couple of days of SE winds have brought misty and cloudy but warm weather. Not much to report from Gaucin, though the Calle Convento/del Pino Swift flock is now a noisy 100+ and the local Blackcap is singing at full power! I haven't heard the Tawny Owl for a few days and as yet we haven't had a repeat of last summer's Common Nightingale singing in the Calle Convento/del Pino gardens. Yesterday whilst walking near San Martin de Tesorillo there were a lot of Nightingales in full flow; at one point there were at least eight individuals along a 50m section of track, an incredible soundscape. From within the tumult I managed to pick out the scratchy song of my first Melodious Warbler of the year.
