Thursday 26 March 2015, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light-fresh NW wind, 16C

Three very quiet days since the rain stopped on Monday; cold starts, 4C, but warming up nicely during the day. South-easterly winds Tuesday and stiff northerlies yesterday and today led to an absence of significant raptor migration; frequent checks of the sky produced just 'local' Short-toed Eagle and Booted Eagle. Swift sp. numbers haven't really increased much though it's great to watch those that have arrived mixing it with the Barn Swallows and House Martins.
On the way down to the coast yesterday there were a handful of Kestrel sp.' including at least one Lesser Kestrel, also 4 Common Raven and a new mirador or viewpoint opposite Sierra Crestellina with an information board with raptor ID photos, see below:
