Friday 19 February 2016, Gaucin, cloudy, light rain showers, light E wind, 8C

After 12mm of overnight rain, today felt very chilly in the easterly wind with a persistent light drizzle. A damp early morning dog-walk along Camino de Avedin was rewarded with 13 Hawfinch in their usual haunt at the top of a huge poplar tree and 5 Siskin feeding on 'catkins'; also Common Chiffchaff and Black Redstart plus Song Thrush, Blackbird, European Robin and Blackcap all singing; Green Woodpecker was heard. A repeat walk at 18:00hrs produced no Hawfinch but there were 3 Siskin in the same tree as this morning.
