Well our David may be up and about birding again but it sounds to me as if his leg is like mine; on the mend but not completely better yet. I suspect we are both about 10% off being to take part in the next Olympic sprint for oldies! Along with the rest of the Arboleas Birding Group they certainly had a good morning's birding and it's one thing having to wait for an Audouin's Gull until I return to Spain in late April but, more to the point, in which country will I see my first Barn Swallow of the year?
