MONDAY 21st APRIL 2014

8-19 °C, Wind E/SE 6-17km/h, sunny earlier becoming overcast and dull later,Pressure 1009 hPa.


Caught site of a raptor moving through the tree tops, almost dismissing it as a Buzzard something made me raise my bins. Colour combination of well demarcated red/brown and pale grey could only be a male Marsh Harrier! Sailed off North over the trees a Buzzard drifting over near by apparently unconcerned.Great to get positive id. on this harrier after missing out on an earlier one this spring.
Saw the Nightingale although in poor light and noticed obvious striations on its breast/belly.
Am now wondering about Thrush nightingale as I assume they migrate through Serbia to breed in north east Europe?
