I have been away in Cyprus for the last 10 days, missing a minor fall of migrants last weekend when the easterly winds were at last coupled with some rain. Conditions only lasted a day or so and everything is back to being quiet with the spring slipping away. We only have a window of a couple of weeks remaining where rare migrants are likely if the weather conditions are right. Something like a red-backed shrike, that we haven’t had through Crail for a couple of years now. Fingers crossed. I did see my first common terns of the year today among a large passage of sandwich terns. Common terns are about the last of the regular migrants to get to Crail.
