Monday 30 March 2015, Gaucin, mostly sunny, calm air-light SW wind, 25C

This morning whilst walking near the Herriza hotel behind El Hacho, there was some passage of Black Kite, with 20+ moving through at 1130hrs; also 10 European Bee-eater and a lovely female Montagu's Harrier. Species heard included Common Cuckoo (first of the year), Bonelli's Warbler and Willow Warbler. Back in the village there were 40+ Black Kite at 1415hrs and another 15, plus a Short-toed Eagle, at 1500hrs. At about 1800hrs, on the way back from yet another trip to the coast, where the temperature hit 28C, there were many Black Kite, also several Booted Eagle and Short-toed Eagle, heading north over Sierra Crestellina.
