Arrived in France at 3pm their time. Bright sunshine but absolutely freezing with a bitter wind from the north. Welsh Rugby International James Hook was on the plane with his family so we were all able to congratulate him on the great result on Sunday. Hook now plays for Perpignan.
Driving to our place the first bird of note was amazingly a Red Kite moving over the Canal de Midi. A couple of Buzzards were the only other birds noted on the journey. At home just 2 Robins and a Song Thrush made an appearance before dark.
