Sunday was a Holiday here but the light was affected by a sandy haze that has come to define much of the weather these days. Had only a few hours out at the Chicken Farm at Hamalah and the gardens at Buri. The number of migrant species is on the increase now with a good number of further firsts of the season for me to mix in with our wintering and resident species.
Yellow Wagtail - Feldegg
Shoveler the only duck seen this weekend at the pond
Corn Bunting - many males are singing there heads off
Isabelline Wheatear still the most numerous wheatear around
Marsh Harrier - still here and this time come in for the attack
Mixed flocks of Spanish and House Sparrows out number most other birds.
