Sandwich time



Local patch: 2 juvenile Sandwich Terns today on the sea, fishing together along the coast. It's been quite a long time since the last Sandwich from home...

The last few days also the odd WOODPIGEON again (possibly a pair bred in the area this year), 6 Swallows flying past and the usual Sparrowhawk.

On Monte Grisa 23 Alpine Swifts screaming while escaping a massive rainstorm, 1 Blue Rock Thrush and a dark morph Honey Buzzard.
