It's currently snowing here in Gaucin so a good day to start the Spring Migration thread......it's been a slow start so far after the first House Martin on 13 Jan followed by a couple of Black Kite on 09 Feb and a single on 24 Feb then Barn Swallow on 21 Feb and 3 Short-toed Eagle on 24 Feb. Rain and strong winds haven't been conducive to crossing the straits but hopefully the warm spell predicted for next week will bring some more action.
