Birding Forecast- Easter Weekend
Here is the forecast for Sunday. That cold front moving into this warm air cell could well act as a barrier to migrants and cause some kind of concentration/falls. Could concentrate overshoots too- in the SW. For local birding round here we really do need frontal conditions to bring down migrants.
I got today's forecast okayish- loads of Black Terns (mainly in mid-england), but just the odd Little Gull and Arctic Terns in the country but a good scattering of spring overshoots in the West Country and Southern Ireland- with the odd one elsewhere e.g. Bee-eater at Dunge and some okay sea watching too- some Poms off the South Coast.
