More of the same

I worked all morning and did notice a couple of Honey Buzzards going north and also a resident Short-toed Eagle overhead.

Late afternoon I went out in anticipation of finding some signs of migration.  Only one female Montagu's Harrier where yesterday there was so much activity.  At Bois Bas I listened to Cirl Bunting, Whitethroat and Western Bonelli's Warbler singing and was a bit surprised to see a Black Kite going north.  It is a bit late for a migrant of this species in this area.

Returning to Minerve the Alpine Swifts had increased to 6 and I saw a Blue Rock Thrush and a couple of Crag Martins.

No sign of any Red-backed Shrikes yet which is both surprising and disappointing.
