Not bad, but could have been better...

Bird of the spring so far - a Little Ringed Plover I stumbled across with a few of it's more common cousins. I heard it calling, perhaps alarmed by a Merlin (a good bird for May) sitting on a post 100m away. The Merlin departed off south, with the LRP heading off high NE an hour later.

Not much else, despite promising conditons. Finally saw a Sedge Warbler, but not the Cuckoo I heard. Sometimes the anticipation outweighs the reality.

Incidentally, the photo was taken at S'Albufera marshes in Majorca, where I'll be next week! Bring it on...
