birds : The birds are finally coming through in better numbers (but not so much a variety) and there was a distinct increase in birds today especially, despite the very cold Northerly breeze. On the Old Aerodrome at lunchtime there were at least 50 Wheatears and I finally got my first Yellow Wagtails and Whitethroat for the year. There were also lots and lots of White Wagtails around and three Marsh Harriers were in the air together over the Claire Mare reeds. Waders are appearing too with Whimbrels and Common Sandpipers on the beach at Pulias. But nothing to get the blood going and still searching for a good April rarity.
