Saturday 16 May 2015, Gaucin, sunny, light SE wind, 26C

Reports for yesterday, weather similar to today but a couple of degrees warmer, included 12 Honey Buzzard, 4 Booted Eagle and 2 Short-toed Eagle heading north over El Puente around midday and 4 Common Cuckoo (3m 1f) on El Hacho (per Tim Birkhead); I managed just 3 Honey Buzzard mid-afternoon.
Today there were 4 Honey Buzzard over La Umbria at 1030hrs, also in the area, a first for me here in early summer, was a Turtle Dove plus at least 3 Bonelli's Warbler, Iberian Chiffchaff and a family party of European Nuthatch. There were two Booted Eagle displaying just above the rooftops over Calle Convento at 1330hrs.
