And finally...

Not to much birding lately unfortuntely, not much about either but with February coming to end and spring in the air there's some more bird activity. Missed a a total of 70 Spoonbills two days ago, record for Malta...11 shot though... need to comment any further.
On a positive note had a good morning birding at Buskett. Blackcaps everywhere and quite active not seeming as shy as usual. Around 7 Song Thrushes, as well as Dunnocks and Chaffinches. The first House Martin flitted by just after we got the highlight. We heard it first not sure if it was a Starling or what we hoped it was, but as it flew up and perched in a cypress tree, it was evident it was no Starling but our first Redwing in Malta and being able to enjoy it for a while too!

not too easy to take photos off though...
