Hi Clive, interesting I am now picking-up lots of Woodchat Shrike, Subalpine Warbler, Spectacled Warbler, Black-eared Wheatear and a few Willow Warbler. Most if not all our Lesser Kestrel are back and at last Booted Eagles are now regular (still not on usual territories). Common Swift is now regular and lots of Alpine Swifts around. I managed a Northern Wheatear Oenanthe oenanthe leucorhoa high up in Libar on Monday, which is, I think, my earliest date since living here.

Of interest although unusual was a Short-eared Owl near Montejaque on Tuesday and on the same day a Ruppell's Vulture coming into the feeding area near to Acinipo (Old Ronda).

Hi Peter,

Yes it is interesting to see the comparison. Certainly it is VERY early for Greenland Wheatear and a sighting worth noting. Just spent three days in Donana and breeding of waterbirds is behind schedule. It seems too much water! Lots of Booted Eagles there and a strong passage of Bee-eaters too.

Cheers,


Clive

Removed a post here as it referred to migration of people not birds! Sorry about that, although very interesting the Forum is 'strictly' about wildlife and if there is a need for more general threads non wildlife, then happy to create a seperate general heading on the forum.

First Woodchat Shrike and Willow Warblers of the year today - by the raging Rio Verde in Marbella.

Nice pics Kevin. Lots of migrants started to appear 24th in the upper Sahara region here in Morocco, so I fully expect an influx VERY soon at home (Spain)!!!
