(View on the sea from my home)
Local Patch: this morning the first Goldcrest for the season (in the patch) was calling on a pine tree. Also increasing Black Redstarts (especially females) around, Chaffinches coming to gardens with Blue Tits. Starlings forming even bigger flocks and visiting gardens.
Yesterday a whale of some kind (Balenoptera sp.) was seen in the Gulf of Trieste quite close to coast. Today it headed south towards the open sea. See here
