Wednesday 04 November 2015, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light SW wind, 18C

After the deluges of the last few days, more than 120mm of rain falling since Saturday, today was dry, quite sunny and relatively warm. A visit to the west slope of El Hacho from 09:30-10:30hrs produced a single Griffon Vulture, Common Kestrel, Southern Grey Shrike, Blue Rock Thrush, 2 Song Thrush, 10+ Black Redstart, Stonechat, Crag Martin, European Robin, lots of Blackcap, Sardinian Warbler, a nice flock of 15 Linnet, and Cirl Bunting.
Aside from the birds, there was a party of 4 Spanish Ibex high up amongst the rocks with 2 female/juv, one youngster and a wonderful male, sporting two huge antlers (sadly, too far away to get a photo).
