Friday 22 January 2016, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light E-SE wind, 16C

Highlights of a morning walk through the mixed cork oak and pine woods to the south-east of Gaucin were Griffon Vulture, Common Buzzard, Eurasian Sparrowhawk, Common Kestrel, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, Crag Martin, House Martin, Eurasian Nuthatch, Crested Tit and Firecrest. Around 17:00hrs a Eurasian Sparrowhawk patrolling over Calle del Pino spooked the recently-returned House Martin contingent; 10 of them grouped together quickly for 'safety in numbers'.
Quite a few Wall Brown Lasiommata megera butterflies around at the moment
