Thursday 22 January 2015, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light-fresh N-NW wind, 9C

A visit to the Rio Genal from 0930-1030 this morning was pretty quiet with the following noted:
Griffon Vulture, Grey Heron, 2 Great Cormorant (flying over), 10 Mallard (also flying over), Song Thrush, White Wagtail, Grey Wagtail, 3 Chiffchaff, Blackcap, 6 Greenfinch and, best of all, 13 Hawfinch. Later in the morning there was a Common Crossbill singing from a cypress tree opposite the Tienda Verde in Calle Convento.

In lieu of anything more exciting, here's a photo of a White Wagtail:

There was a snowfall on Tuesday evening with a light covering as far south as the western peaks of the Sierra de Libar.  The Gaucin-Ronda road was closed at Encinas Borrachas leaving several people stranded for a couple of hours! The Sierrra de las Nieves was still looking good behind Gaucin on Friday, see photo:
