Dull overcast and rain showers but good birds

Permalink 20:16:28, Categories: Observation by Howard  

We are experiencing some funny weather one day its raining the next we have a sandstorm and then several days of both together - one could say dirty rain and yet the ground hardly gets wet strange but true.
But the good news is the birds are moving through now in large numbers Today we lost count of the umber of warblers we saw - mostly Willow and Chiffchaff but all kinds of other goodies besides.

After the chaos of the last few weeks calm and reason has finally returned hopefully for ever. I did sneak out a few times to observe but photography was restricted but Brendan and I have managed a bit of ringing in some of our quieter spots with good results.
