Sunday 21 September 2014, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, calm air-light SE wind, 24C

The weather pattern is definitely more autumnal; there were a few big drops of rain today, but nothing measureable! Little to report for Friday/Saturday but Tim Birkhead recorded 2 (possibly 3) Bonelli's Eagle at Sierra Crestellina and 2 Turtle Dove at the Rio Genal below Gaucin on Friday. The last couple of evenings there have been 100+ House Martin in the Calle Convento/Calle del Pino area.

There was some migration action over the village this afternoon as follows:

1630hrs: 3 Booted Eagle
1645hrs: 5 Booted Eagle, 1 Short-toed Eagle
1700hrs: 25 Alpine Swift
1830hrs: male Montagu's Harrier
1845hrs: female Marsh Harrier, Common Buzzard
1930hrs: 7 Common Kestrel

During this time there were at least 3 Common Swift, 1 Barn Swallow and several House Martin around the south of the village.
