Sunday 24 January 2016, Gaucin, partly cloudy, light SE wind, 18C

A morning visit to the Rio Genal produced no surprises but it was nice to see a Green Sandpiper there plus a good count of 20+ Hawfinch. There were also at least 6 Common Chiffchaff, ranging from the 'normal' quite bright olive-green colouration though to a very brown individual with just a tinge of yellow showing under the tail.
Back in the Gaucin there was a Peregrine patrolling high over the southern edge of the village during the warm afternoon and a Common Chiffchaff singing below Calle del Pino. Birdsong, of Blackcaps in particular, is changing noticeably from the quieter, shorter subsong to the more vocal full song.
