The last week has seen several Montagu's Harrier over Gaucin, also good numbers of Black Kite and Booted Eagle and a handful of Black Stork. Also around the village, a pair of Common Cuckoo calling/singing to each other, Eurasian Hoopoe and reported by others, a Wryneck. The cork oak woods are now alive with the songs of Bonelli's Warbler and Iberian Chiffchaff.

Down on the beach at Sabinillas yesterday a lovely male Subalpine Warbler was an unexpected surprise....

The first Golden Oriole of the year was seen in Gaucin on Thursday and the first Turtle Dove was reported on Friday; other than that, very quiet on the migration front.

We have seen masses of Honey Buzzards today over the Genal Valley and Ronda. The bad weather of the past week must have held them up. 14.5.2016

First significant numbers of Honey Buzzards over Gaucin (including over the Genal Valley); saw a few yesterday but many more today. Also a few Black Kite.

Last night a great sight was 4 Red-necked Nightjar hawking low over our terrace in the middle of Gaucin! We used to see them regularly about this time but they've been absent the last few years - good to see them back.

Still some good numbers of Honey Buzzard moving through Gaucin, with 300+ between 1800-1900hrs last night and 50+ over the Rio Genal early this morning - also a few Black Kite.
