patch stuff and nonsense

It’s beginning to pick up a bit.  But the birds are very much of the winter variety, and the longed for migrants have yet to show their face.  Yesterday produced a pair of Teal on the beach, while today produced a couple of Oystercatchers and three Sanderling, which you can see from this image still have their winter coats on.

Having studied the prevailing pressure charts for the next few days, I can now firmly state that the first summer migrant will arrive on my patch on Thursday and it will be a Sand Martin.  Or a Wheatear.  Or an Osprey.  Or another species.  But it will be on Friday, that much is sure.

In anticipation of this momentous event, I have produced a new page for your perusal dear reader.  It is the patch list for 2010. 

I can feel the excitement oozing through the screen.  Oh yes I can.
