Wednesday 25 February 2015, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light-fresh NW wind, 14C

Despite today and yesterday being sunnier and warmer than of late the northerly winds persist, lending a chilly feel to the air. During the mornings the Camino de Gibraltar has been alive with birdsong with Song Thrush, Blackcap, Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Serin battling it out to be heard. The field below the old convent has been crawling with Black Redstart (at least 10 yesterday, including a couple of fine-looking males), Chaffinch, Goldfinch and Meadow Pipit.
As a consequence of the northerly winds, migrant raptors have been absent but above Camino de Avedin there have been Griffon Vulture, Peregrine, Common Buzzard, Eurasian Sparrowhawk and Common Kestrel.
In the village this morning there were 2 Barn Swallow over Calle del Pino.
