Local patch: finally this morning I managed to find this year's first Garden Warbler for the patch! The bird was feeding on the same bushes as every year with elder-berries. In the area also some more Blackcaps (m and f), some Blue Tits and a nice Coal Tit (feeding on conifer trees). The Coal Tit was seen also some days ago in the patch... last year I had barely one or two records for the whole winter. Let's hope for a good season this year!
On Friday there was a good passage of Tree Pipits and a nice mixed flock of House Martins and Swallows (some hundreads) was feeding in the air above the patch.
