birds : All it needs is a slight change in the weather to bring the migrants down. A southerly shift to the wind and a bit of rain, and there was my first migrant Chiffchaff in the gorse at Fort Hommet on Thursday. Then today I picked up at least 6 Wheatear and a Common Sandpiper there. Of course the downside to this is that it is actually wet and miserable now after a week of bright sunshine.

nonsense : They have recently discovered a long-lost section of the Bayeux Tapestry which seems to tell the tale of early birding folk . . . . .
