Wednesday 11 November 2015, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light S-SE wind, 22C

After the surprise sighting of a European Otter on the Rio Genal last week, a visit to the same spot this morning in warm autumn sunshine was rewarded with some great views of not one, but two of these amazing animals! They seemed quite content splashing around together along the river bank and paid me little heed as I watched them for a good 10 minutes.

Birds were in short supply with Common Kingfisher and Short-toed Treecreeper the highlights; other species seen included Grey Heron, Eurasian Jay, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Black Redstart, European Robin, 5x Meadow Pipit, Grey Wagtail, White Wagtail, Blackcap, Sardinian Warbler, Chaffinch and Greenfinch.
