From 16:00-18:00hrs I walked along the Las Pilas track above Algatocin which was pretty quiet. I didn't see a single raptor until I was almost back to the car when I spotted a distant pair of adult Bonelli's Eagle perched on the rocks on the top of the ridge and then a couple of Kestrel sp. flew by. Other species seen included Common Raven, Blue Rock Thrush, Song Thrush, Stonechat, Black Redstart (10+), Meadow Pipit, Firecrest, Common Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Sardinian Warbler and Cirl Bunting.
In the village at around 12noon, 2 Common Crossbill flew over Plaza del Santo Niño.
