Fizzled Out

Bull-headed Shrike

Yesterday was a grey misty Sunday. The spring migration season has just about fizzled out: a bit of a quiet one this year.

Some muted birds on a somewhat muted day.

Latham’s Snipe
Wryneck

Other stuff around included Cattle Egret, Green Sandpiper, lots of Grey-tailed Tattlers, a small flock of Falcated Duck, Eastern Marsh Harrier and newly arrived Black-browed Reed Warblers.

  1. Come on Stuart please! We in the UK would die to see Snipe, Shrike and especially Wryneck on our local patch!!!! yes migration gone quiet in London too so welcoming Butterflies and Dragonflies as finally we have hotter and sunnier weather arriving….

  2. Bull-headed Shrike is one of my favourite shrikes…..a nice bird to have to help the spring passage fizzle out…
