Monday 09 February 2016, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, fresh W-NW wind, 15C

Despite feeling rather cold in the fresh northerly wind, today saw the first returning Black Kite; at 14:45hrs there were 2 heading against the wind, SSE-NNW, between Sierra Crestellina and El Hacho.

The past few days have been quiet. On Saturday morning there was a male Eurasian Sparrowhawk cruising above the bridge on the Ronda road before landing on a house roof adjacent to bar El Socorro and in the afternoon a Booted Eagle above Calle del Pino and three Common Crossbill near La Cruz. On Sunday afternoon there were 4 Common Raven just to the south of the village. At least a couple of Common Chiffchaff in the area have started singing.
