Although the weather was somewhat below average - possibly achieving a rating of 'ordinary' - today I fitted in a bike ride to Pollack Rd on the Hoskinstown plain late in the morning. Overall I recorded 22 species with the highlights being a juvenile Little Eagle (warmly greeted by every Magpie on the Plain) and some Tree Martins.
The latter seemed a tad early but the COG Bird Info page shows that this is returning right on time.
As an aside, after a few days inaction on the nest building front 'my' Tawny Frogmouths added a lot of material to their nest last evening. If the nest building phase has the usual duration, brooding should start in the next couple of days.
