Friday 29 April 2016, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, light-fresh SE wind, 19C

The forecast, and imminent threat of rain, didn't discourage Rob and I as we set off this morning to check out the Marchenilla track behind San Pablo de Buceite. It turned out that we made the right decision as, despite some very black clouds over towards the Alcornocales National Park, it remained warm and dry; plus we saw some great birds, too!
Star species seen were Egyptian Vulture, Rufous Bush Robin and Western Olivaceous Warbler. Other species seen included Griffon Vulture, Short-toed Eagle, Booted Eagle, Common Buzzard, 25 Honey Buzzard, Common Raven, White Stork, 4 Turtle Dove, European Bee-eater, Woodchat Shrike, Crested Lark, Red-rumped Swallow, Stonechat, Zitting Cisticola, Common Nightingale, Cetti's Warbler, Melodious Warbler, Blackcap, Common Whitethroat, Spanish Sparrow, Serin and Corn Bunting.
