Still no migrants...
But they can't be far away! Bit of warmer weather over the weekend and a nice southerly breeze blowing them up their arses, wheatears should be on patch any day now if the weather stays favourable. Until then I'll have to content myself with the occasional flyover peregrine and 125 golden plover, which have appeared two fields up from my house - in fact you can just about make them out from my office with the naked eye.
Golden plovers, Chard: R. Harris
Loads of bloody-nose beetles out today too -
I love Spring, wouldn't mind betting my local colony of grey mining bees will be emerging in the next week too.
