Bird Migration (UK)

Is it me or is there some fantastic migration numbers happening right now? Yesterday, Monday, there appeared to be lots of birds passing up the Severn estuary and that appears to have continued today with over 100 Common Terns seen at Avonmouth alone. I was on the estuary this afternoon and there seemed to be birds everywhere. they included Kittiwakes, Whimbrel, Black, Common, Arctic and Little Terns and lots of passerines to name a few and Meadow Pipits were passing in large numbers. There is a report tonight of over 367,000 of this latter species passing a location in The Netherlands in just one morning (today) which is more than ever recorded in one YEAR. Birdguides website (partial paysite) is stacked out with sightings today. The numbers of sightings are reminiscent of a fine weather Sunday instead of a working day but one of the most noticable things is the number of Black Tern and Little Gull sightings sometimes in good numbers. I saw my first Swallows on Sunday when a steady stream progressed up the River Severn but today they seem to be on territory in various villages in the Severn valley. Migration seems to have exploded in the last 48 hours.

I have posted a new thread in this forum called "Bird Migration (UK)". It was purely coincidental that you posted this thread as I was typing mine. Add mine to this thread if you wish. It seems that migration through the UK has gone ballistic in the last 48 hours. Birds are everywhere.
