Some new arrivals but migration remains slow

Permalink 17:35:45, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Better late than never this weekend saw an increase in activity with the arrival of pipits and larks but warblers remain hard to find. A visit to the morning collection point in Jasra for the Hypocolius however proved fruitfal with more birds passing through than previously seen, over 200 this time.
