Ideal time to watch bird migration

Bird notes


Spring migration gets under way in April, with arrivals and departures of birds, all seeking their best breeding territories.

This April was an interesting, almost ‘four-season’ month with a wide range of temperatures and other weather conditions but it was much drier and colder than April last year. There was less than a tenth of the rain of last April and the mean temperature was half that of last April. The last 10 days saw mainly cold northerly winds.
