birds : Well my declaration that spring migration was probably over was blown out of the water this evening when the grapevine sprung into action with a report of 3 Black-winged Stilts at the Claire Mare. As usual, the call did not come at a good time as I was half-way through putting together a flat-pack table. A few minutes of speed-DIY later, and we were on our way down west (Mum and Dad were my twitching buddies). The three birds were showing exceptionally well on the new pond at the back of the reserve but were mostly asleep whilst I was there. These birds were the 6th record for Guernsey.
