Five birders thrash their local shrubbery for a whole year, to little real effect. One of them does it using a camel, but none of them is into cars....

One spring dip, another spring tick
I cycled up onto the western escarpment of the Forest today in search of a Redstart - sadly, none were present in Redshoot Wood (yet) - but I did find a stunning displaying pair of Firecrests, about half a dozen Hawfinches, and a distant singing Cuckoo (127). I suspect not one of Moran's satellite-tagged birds.... Also another Swallow over the road on the way there.
