Actually apart from the Willy Wagtail, I reckon
that would be evidence that it is still winter (being the peak abundance season
for the others). It is worth a reminder that total abundance of birds of all
species combined, smoothly decreases from the maximum in April to the minimum in
November then smoothly increases again (back cover & Fig 9 of GBS Report)
and species diversity peaks in October.
