Slow but intersting passage

Permalink 18:41:24, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Still slow - but think the higher than normal temperature might be holding birds back - this weekend saw a lot more pied wheatears but only a single Desert while in contrast Duck numbers seem to be up especially at Tubli
