birds : The volume of bird traffic always reduces in May, with most British migrants having already passed through. But although the numbers aren't there it's important to push on with searching for rare birds as the rarity/common ratio goes up somewhat. And the later it gets in the spring, the rarer the birds are likely to be. There were plenty of Swallows today but I saw little else of interest until I checked the back pond at the Claire Mare and saw a fine male Garganey swimming around. I only had less than 5 minutes to snap a few photos before I had to race back to classes.
