Back to normal

Lade - 0700hrs - cool, sunny, ne 3 - A fresher feel to the atmosphere this morning for a circuit of the local patch, but without Barney it just didn`t feel right. Anyhow, migrants were noticeable by their absence with not a single martin, chat or flycatcher seen and only a handful of Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps around the willow swamp, although there did seem to be an increase in Blackbirds and Robins. Overhead a trickle of Yellow Wagtails, Mipits and a single Tree Pipit. A pale Common Buzzard sat atop the 30 foot dish `mirror` while being pestered by a couple of Magpies.
