Wednesday 04 May 2016, Gaucin, mostly cloudy, light SE wind, 22C

Very little to report over the last few, sunny and warm, days. A handful of Honey Buzzard and the usual 'local' Booted and Short-toed Eagle sightings but no big migration numbers - as others in the region have also reported. This afternoon there was a Blue Rock Thrush singing away on a rooftop in Calle Convento and also a male on the building next to cafe El Puente - this could mean there are two pairs breeding within the village, which would be great. Down on the Rio Genal on Monday there were at least 3 Little-ringed Plover but no sign of the Common Sandpiper from the other day; also Golden Oriole singing but not seen.

Some nice flowers around the north of El Hacho this morning:

Early Purple Orchid Orchis mascula

Wild Peony Paeonia mascula
