TODAY - SATURDAY 29TH AUGUST 2015 - over cast, heavy cloud at noon with light rain S-SE light wind
From my top terrace on the eastern side of the village I noted the following:

2:30 - 3:30   - 642  Honey Buzzards, 2 Booted Eagles, 5 Black Kites
3:45 - 4:15  -  119  Honey Buzzards, 1 Booted Eagle, 11 Black Kites, 9 Griffon Vultures

The heavy cloud and rain may have instigated this short flurry of activity, nevertheless it is starting to get exciting now, watch this space for more big numbers of Honey Buzzards.

Note from Paul:
It's good to have another pair of eyes doing the work! Today I had little time to scan the skies and saw just 30+ Honey Buzzard between 11:30 and 12:30hrs. As Bob mentioned, we were experienced a few drops of sandy-coloured rain but not enough to measure on the rain gauge.
