Monday 23 March 2015, Gaucin, partly cloudy am, rain pm, light SW wind, 12C

A mixed day of weather today with quite a sunny, dry morning followed by a grim, dark, cold and wet afternoon! The lull in the rain this morning, combined with more favourable SW wind, brought quite a few raptors through including 60+ Short-toed Eagle and 4 Booted Eagle (3 pale morph, 1 dark morph) between 1000hrs and 1030hrs; interestingly, the Short-toed Eagles were mainly coming from a vaguely north-westerly direction, massing in 'kettles' just south of the castle before heading north.
Mid-morning there was a male Blue Rock Thrush carrying nesting material into a ruin alongside cafe/bar El Puente, right in the centre of the village.
