And Bee-Eaters today flying over my garden in Almagro. Sometimes Nature is regular as clockwork.

Turtle Dove purring this morning close by my mum's in Rio Verde valley, a fly-through Sand Martin (don't see them here often), plus a Greenland-looking Northern Wheatear cheekily borrowing the local male Black-Eared's chimney pot. Nightingale here since about a week ago, Cuckoo 3 or 4 days ago, 6 Bee-Eaters looked to go straight through purposefully but the local flock must be well over 50 now, building in a matter of a couple of days.

Still, a surprising lack of warblers, with only several Blackcaps (now seemingly moved on) to add to the Sardines in the garden. Why don't Phylloscs come through here I wonder?

Still much quieter than I thought it would be migrant-wise so having to make do with watching a pair of Bonelli's Eagle on an almost daily basis (it's a tough job but somebody's got to do it), always flying around in a two, as are many of the Short-toeds. I always imagined eagles would be quite solitary in habits. Guess it's the time of year. Never thought I'd have Bonelli's Eagle on my swimming pool list. In fact I never imagined I'd have a swimming pool list at all. Or a chip van list come to think of it.

Two Bonelli's Warbler in Gaucin yesterday, plus several small groups of Bee-eater moving through, and a Melodious Warbler in full song near San Martin de Tesorillo this morning.

I found my first Western Olivaceous Warbler, Spotted Flycatcher and Turtle Dove on my local patch yesterday.  There was also a male and female Northern Wheatear feeding together.

I have had Pied Flycatcher, Nightingale, Whitethroat, Whinchat and Bonelli's Warbler since the last week in April.
