Saturday 28 March 2015, Gaucin, sunny, calm air-light SW wind, 24C

Moving through Gaucin today there was an Osprey at 1130hrs and the first European Bee-eater of the year at 1800hrs. Swift sp. numbers to the south of the village now up to 40+. A walk along the Camino de Gibraltar from 1700-1800hrs was surprisingly quiet apart from the Bee-eater and large numbers of Blackcap; also Eurasian Jay, Great-spotted Woodpecker, 2x Song Thrush, European Robin, Stonechat, Sardinian Warbler and Cirl Bunting but not one Black Redstart.
