Anyone seen anything significant yet? An early returning pair of Honey Buzzard seen moving over Gaucin on Sat 01 August (Bob Buckler) and a Common Kestrel moving through today but so far no Black Kite (in contrast to last year when we had seen several hundred by now). Big numbers of Common/Pallid Swift early this evening with 450+ through in 10min.

More than 3500 Black Kite heading NE-SW over Gaucin this afternoon between 1630hrs and 1830hrs. This would be an underestimate as I wasn't watching for the full 2hrs. In amongst them a lone adult Egyptian Vulture.

Black Kite continue to move through over Gaucin and now, also, significant numbers of Honey Buzzard e.g. 100+ yesterday afternoon. A first in Gaucin for me on Wednesday was a Western Olivaceous Warbler; Common Redstart are beginning to turn up in the area, too.

700 White Storks at La Puebla de Cazalla dump (km59 of A92) today. I counted 100 individually on the ground (until I realised my children would get me locked up if they found out) and estimated 600 on ground and 2 flocks of 40 and 60 in air. Also dozens / a hundred black kites. Dosens / a hundred jackdaws (these are uncommon locally in summer and common in winter so I don't know whether passing through or arriving). 50 plus cattle egrets (these are common locally most of, if not all, year and therefore may not be on migration). Dozens / 100 yellow legged gulls. Booted Eagles over garden recently but I have never seen one at the dump. Linda

The last couple of weeks have seen steady, if unspectacular, migration over Gaucin. Raptors observed include Egyptian Vulture, Honey Buzzard, Common Buzzard, Black Kite, Booted Eagle, Short-toed Eagle, Marsh Harrier, Montagu's Harrier, Osprey and Lesser Kestrel. A couple of days ago there were Rock Thrush and Black-eared Wheatear on the west slope of El Hacho mountain, both migrants moving through.
