Had a reasonable day yesterday with migration in evidence for hirundines and raptors. Short-toed Eagles were drifting North as small groups and individuals, Lesser Kestrels were flocking near to the old dam at Montejaque, whilst my biggest surprise and a 1st for 'my patch' was a Little Swift flying with lots Swallows, House/Sand Martins and a few Red-rumped Swallows at the eatern head of the reservoir near Zahara! Several Chiffchaff, not any Willows, were busy feeding in the area and a solitary Ring Ouzel was feeding near the dam (Montejaque). Northern Wheatear were on cereal fields near the dam and also had my first Black-eared Wheatear male (1st summer male) near to Montecorto. A Black Stork was resting on flooded fields near to the Rio Guadiaro near to Indiana.

So despite the weather (rain) its still very worthwhile to take yourself out and about!

Agree and it really is interesting to compare notes. Had lots of Short-toed Eagles today and around 100+ Black Kite. Also my 1st Willow Warbler for the spring. Again lots of hirundines.
