Tuesday 16 August 2016, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light S-SE wind, 31C

Hurrah! The first significant (seen by me) Black Kite movement today with 250+ south-west of the village at 15:00hrs. They were in a 'kettle', high and distant (close to the confluence of the Genal and Guadiaro rivers), and there may have been a few Booted Eagle in there, too. Locally, there was a pale morph Booted Eagle around as well as the dark morph that has been around and about all summer. Also, 40+ European Bee-eater heading north-west over El Hacho at 20:00hrs - clearly not on their way south just yet.
