Saturday 10 September 2016, Gaucin, sunny, calm air-light W-NW wind, 33C

Despite a change in wind direction, the warm, sunny weather continues. Locally there's been little to report with no raptor migration to speak of. The vocal pair of Booted Eagle (plus a third - juvenile?) are still around above the south of the village as is the first year Blue Rock Thrush which is now singing regularly from roofs in Calle Convento, also at least one Common Swift and 25+ House Martin remain in the area.
Whilst in Ronda (where it was a steamy 36C) to escape the noise of Gaucin's Santo Niño festival (two nights of 'music' until 07:30hrs is just too much!) there were still 20+ Alpine Swift noisily careering around the Tajo as well as 20+ Red-billed Chough; a female Tawny Owl was calling late evening.

Blue Rock Thrush - it may be in silhouette but there's no mistaking that bill!
