This morning I've seen my first Barn Swallow of the year, just a single bird, but a bit of a nudge that springs have almost arrived, also Raven, and Black Wheatear. Has anybody else seen the reported? Terick Sandpiper reported for the 11th at El Pinet, does anybody have a / or even distant blurry photos?
So I thought its a good opportunity to dig out one of my old photos from the Isles of Scilly of a Terick Sandpiper from 22 years ago April 1999. to show what one looks like, unmistakable with that turned up bill.
