Of the other birds, these were the most notable: 4 Night Herons, 5 Purple Herons (above), 1 Wryneck (singing), 2 Whinchats and a male Red-backed Shrike. Waders included the more or less usual Black-winged Stilts (23), Little Ringed Plover (1), Common Redshank (3), Wood Sandpiper (2) and so on. About 24 Common Terns now on the nests in the brackish lagoon.
Great Reed Warbler
Local patch: the first days of May are the proper time to see a returning Honey Buzzard and yesterday I had my first one just over the house. It was a nice male and it even circled for a while with one of the local Common Buzzards (second pic), before gliding E.
Also a Grey Heron flying SE along the coast, 1 Golden Oriole singing (almost daily now) and usual seasonal stuff like Nightingale, 2 Ravens, Black Redstart, Common Swifts and House Martins.
