Sunday 22 February 2015, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light-fresh W-NW wind, 12C

Saturday 21 February saw light rain am and a bit of sunshine pm; a good sighting for the village was a Redwing along Camino de Gibraltar around 0900hrs.

Today, feeling nice and warm in the sun but once again chilly in the fresh northerly wind, there was a hint of Spring migration with 3 Black Kite over El Peso at 1300hrs and 2 Black Stork over the village at 1445hrs. Along the Camino de Gibraltar this morning there were still at least 5 Black Redstart, also 2 Meadow Pipit in the field below the convent ruins and a Firecrest in the oaks. Down beside the Arroyo de Las Pallas there were lots of Large Tortoiseshell butterflies.

An addition to Friday 20 February....2 Mistle Thrush seen in the El Peso area to the north of El Hacho.

The Almond blossom is looking good at the moment
