Permalink 12:22:57, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Well I can official announce that the return migration has well and truely started. Last weekend my only new species to photograph was a Woodchat Shrike picture (included here) this week saw the return of more Warbler species (some captured on the camera) with Menetries, Orphean, Reed, more Barred, Lesser Whitethroat, and Chiffchaff plus a Pied Wheatear so won't be long before we see even more.
