Hot migrant action at last

Finally unblocked the first of JLI’s early season migrants yesterday, more by chance than by design – a speculative scan out of the kitchen window came good when a Lard Dove laboured past looking fat and plumptious. The 2009 house list advances like a very slow thing indeed.

No sign yet of the Greenfinch I know is roosting in the plantation every night, despite much speculative seed spreading. As for Snow Bunting… looking increasingly like that one is going to have to wait until the end of the year. Ditto Long-tailed Duck.

The joys of yearlisting. If I can get excited about a Woodpigeon, god knows what a Subalpine Warbler would do for my heart-rate.

  1. Glad to see you have emerged from your winter snooze Jon. It is likely I will become a nearish neighbour later in the year, Orkney beckons. How’s the garden doing?
