Saturday and another trip to the gardens raised hopes that the migration is about to start for real. A Wryneck and the first Woodchat Shrike of the season are good indicators the return cannot be far away. Checking the Hypocolius roost area in Jasra for stragglers first thing in the morning also proved quite fruitful. Not many birds remain from the large wintering flock but over twenty birds were noted but flew on from the morning roost by 7-30.
