This is the week when they arrive here in Notts but I still haven't seen one.
Nor me. Still haven't heard or seen any Common or Lesser Whitethroat, but hedges and deciduous scrub still lack any leaf cover in many places, but recent rain and warmer weather at the end of the week should improve these matters. Lots of deciduous trees are also still almost leafless and forest understorey remains stunted (apart from Alexanders Smyrnium olusatrum, of course along the back roads).This is the week when they arrive here in Notts but I still haven't seen one.
First Swifts in Zürich were a group seen on a rainy evening, approx Apr 22-24th? Then not noted again until about a week ago - now they're present in force, including 300-500 feeding low over a local lake on a shitty cold windy Saturday (May 1) morning.
