to pouring rain today. The birds are just sitting it out as it pours down.
The gull counting is virtually done, just a couple of small areas to finish this afternoon.
|Flora and Lucie are very pleased that it is finished.|
The fantastic spring for migrant birds continues with several cuckoos passing through, some calling in the rain in the top trap,
Other migrant highlights include a whole load of spotted and pied flycatchers, sedge warblers, common and lesser whitethroats, 3 sanderling and a couple of short eared owls moving through,
and best of all a thrush nightingale staying for a couple days,and singing in the top trap,
