Article summary

A remarkable mildness continued throughout the spring, with a period of exceptionally long drought (36 days without rain). In these conditions, many returning and passing migrants were early, without this being completely general. Some migrators were especially frequent (Hoopoe and Ring Ouzel, for example), others rather rare (Whinchat, Goldfinch, Linnet...). Among the exceptional spring visitors, we note White-winged Terns in May, but also observations of the Glossy Ibis, Bonelli’s Eagle, Dotterel, GreatSnipe, Long-billed Dowitcher, Broad-billed Sandpiper, Iceland Gull, Glaucous Gull, Whiskered Tern, Beeeater, Woodchat Shrike, and Cirl Bunting. Among the notable nesters were the waders of Hensies: the second consecutive year for the Night Heron and Little Egret, attempted installation of Cattle Egrets and manifestation of a Spoonbill. Note also the reproduction of Greylag Geese, Avocets, and three Harriers, the continued increase of Gadwalls, and a Spotted Crake. Once again, very few Corncrakes were heard. Among the small songbirds, we note three Savi’s Warblers, two Fan-tailed Warbler territories, the presence of Bearded Tits during the nesting period and the reproduction of several mixed pairs of Pied and White Wagtails. Some non-nesting summer visitors also drew our attention such as numerous Yellow-legged Herring Gulls and some young Caspian Gulls. There were some indications of very early nesting, such as Great Crested Grebes and Great Tits in March and Shelducks at the beginning of May.
