First Short-toed Eagle arrived in Gaucin yesterday, Saturday 14 Feb; possibly an over-wintering bird from the coast but definitely heading northwards!

First Bee-Eaters flying high over Marbella this evening!!  No sign of a Woodchat Shrike here yet - they were already here two weeks ago last year.

First Common Cuckoo heard last Sunday (March 30th) in Valle de Alcudia (Sierra Morena, near Córdoba), plus our second ID of Tree Pipit in La Mancha. Woodchat Shrike is now a common sight in different places.

On Monday our first Purple Heron in Tablas de Daimiel, and also the first Scops Owl hoot. The colony of Night Herons reach over 60 individuals just in the main entrance of the National Park.

I was talking with Mick Smith this morning and he told me that he was sat on his balcony in Torremuelle (between Benalmadena Costa and Fuengirola) sipping his first coffee of the day, between 07:30 and 08:00, when he saw 1,000s of Common Swift flying into Spain across the coast and heading north. He said they were all screaming as they flew overhead. Among them were also a few hundred Alpine Swift.
