Tuesday 08 September 2015, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light-fresh S-SE wind, 27C

The warm, humid and thundery weather continued today, though, unlike yesterday, the 'rain' wasn't even measurable this time.
Scanning the sky mid-afternoon, amidst the noise of church bells, chatting hordes of people and rockets from the continuing Santo Niño celebrations, the following were seen:

15:45hrs: 30+ European Bee-eater
16:00hrs: 9 Honey Buzzard, 1 Booted Eagle
16:30hrs: 70+ Honey Buzzard, 3 Stork sp. (too far away, and at this time the sky too dark, to determine white or black!)
16:40hrs: 10 Honey Buzzard
16:45hrs: 5 Booted Eagle, 1 ad Egyptian Vulture, 4 Lesser Kestrel
17:35hrs: 11 Lesser Kestrel

Local Short-toed and Booted Eagle were around for most of the afternoon, also a few Swift sp. and 30+ House Martin.
