The sky will NOT fall down with the late arrival of H5N1 to British shores, so there's still time to get out migrant hunting before the inevitable "killer chickens" and "turkey assassins" nonsense kicks in....
Weirdest record for a long time has got to be the Razorbill (yes, the Razorbill) at Leighton Moss this morning _ how did it end up there?
More migrants are on the move, with Ospreys trickling through this week, while there are still Siskins coming into the feeders at Dempsey Towers at present _ a shame there was no Serin with 'em, like the one reported from Hoylake yesterday.
My DP column tomorrow is about Ring Ouzels, and definitely NO mention of H5N1.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies.
