Migration still slow with few birds

Permalink 09:09:10, Categories: Observation by Howard  

For what ever reason be it weather or something more sinister this years the migration can only be described as disappointing - having looked at every possible habitat and at vary times of the day I can only state - so few birds, so few species.

Black-winged Stilt I found a pair with two chicks wandering in the road behind Adhari Park making one hell of a racket - the reason one chick was too small to mount the kerb - a quick helping hand from me soon enabled the family to finish their early morning stroll
