Tuesday 10 May 2016, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, frequent rain showers, light SW wind, 11C

After experiencing temperatures of 25C+ in London over the weekend, it came as a bit of a shock to return to a cold, damp Gaucin. The past five days have all seen significant rainfall, with more than 60mm falling in total since Friday when 3 Black Stork were reported over the village.  On Saturday a European Roller was reported (thanks to Julie and Pete) on telephone wires between San Pablo de Buceite and Los Angeles (Estacion de Jimena) - pretty much in the same place where one was seen in July 2012 and not far from other sightings in July 2013; couple this with a juvenile seen about 5km away in late July 2013 and it adds up to a strong possibility of breeding in the area.

Some good vulture news for a change!
