Today the trend was reversed


51 birds were searched today, as everything started migrating at the same time once the sun came back! Lots of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers Dendrocopos major in the garden, at least 250 Sparrowhawks Accipiter nisus, and lots of smaller birds everywhere. One Cuckoo Cuculus canorus and two Red-breasted Flycatchers Ficedula parva were among the most interesting birds searched, but only one of the woodpeckers and a Red-backed Shrike Lanius collurio had lice, and only one each. I did collect mites from several hosts, though.
