Our first day involved getting the group assembled; Steve and Roz arrived at midday whilst Chris, Colin and Shirley were not due until late evening. Jane, Jack & Marg were only joining us for part of the tour later in the week and Geoff (Moth Man) & Jayne joined us for just 1 day.
I collected Steve and Roz at Malaga Airport, they landed on time at 10:30am. The weather was gorgeous with bright sunshine throughout the day but a little windy later. We quickly left the airport and drove to Gaucin with a short stop near Casares to watch Griffon Vultures drifting high up on the thermals, we also saw Stonechat, Sardinian Warbler, Greenfinch and Common Kestrel.
After a brief settling-in period and a welcomed cup of coffee, Steve and Roz were left to loaf on their terrace above their apartment. We took an early dinner because I had to return to Malaga Airport to collect the rest of the group who were arriving late in the evening.
