Three new migrants from Velilla de San Antonio yesterday. Birdsong picking up, temperature in the low 20s, it's well and truly spring now!

162. Iberian Chiffchaff
163. Savi's Warbler
164. Sedge Warbler
Only one new bird this afternoon. At a time when early migrants should be arriving, it seems that migration has come to a screeching halt. I'm finding one or two new birds a weekend, and that's only after a lot of time and effort put in.

86. Eastern Phoebe
