A week with nothing - in late April!

In the last week I have done 116km and seen precisely NO NEW BIRDS! The lastest failure was a cross-country hike in windy and cool conditions round Morestead Down on the MTB - no lesser Whitethroats or Turtle Doves, and nowt exciting at the sewage farm. At least there are hirundines and Swifts in in numbers now, but still virtually no Whitethroats, and few Sedgies either. Worrying.
