It's that time of year: birds leaving for colder climes and arriving from warmer ones! I needed to spend the day in the office today, but, as usual, there were a few bits and pieces passing through the garden. At lunchtime a brief spell of sunshine revealed a good passage of Redwings heading east across the fields. Later on, despite the gloom, the first Sand Martin of the year briefly circled the oak at the end of the garden, allowing a single photo. Still: summertime starts this weekend, so maybe we can look forward to some exciting arrivals!
