Bristol Ornithological Club

Spring has come. The first Sand Martins have arrived and the Swallows are not far behind. The migration of southern wintering birds is gathering pace – the first Osprey has been sighted over the city – heading north; the Chiffchaffs are singing and the wintering flocks of waterbirds, thrushes and finches are all heading away, spending the next few months on their breeding grounds in the far north and across Scandinavia.
