Migration and spring begins to kick in

Permalink 15:31:24, Categories: Observation by Howard  

The weather has improved the cold starts and blustery winds have died away and at last new species are beginning to turn up as the migration season starts to get into full swing. Although seen Warblers, thrushes and larks remain illusive in front of the camera.

Probably the last photo opportunity before they move out for Bluethroat proves to be the best
