Saturday 09 May 2015, Gaucin, sunny, light SE wind, 28C

This morning's calmer conditions saw a return of big numbers of Honey Buzzard with Tim Birkhead reporting 500-600 passing over the village between 1000 and 1130hrs; just south of the village I saw 150+ between 1030 and 1100hrs with at least one Black Kite and one Booted Eagle amongst them. The wind picked up during the afternoon and the Honey Buzzard passage stopped abruptly.
Tim also reported a Common Sandpiper at Estacion de Gaucin and Janice MacBeth saw 3 Golden Oriole just upstream from the bridge over the Rio Genal below Gaucin.
