    and the LPO or Bird Life International's partner in France will require 10 by 10 square km squares to be surveyed across France.

    Thumbs up Big passage now taking place.

    Hi there,
    A big passage of Skuas is taking place in the Channel as well as
    a huge movement of Black Redstarts, Robins, Meadow Pipits, other
    Pipits, Wagtails, and diurnal movers in tandem with insect migration
    in the Channel!
    Worth checking out the Channel seawatch points on the forthcoming
    weekend to check for migrants like Hoopoes and other Continental overshoots
    with the good numbers of returning Warblers like Chiffchaff and Willow Warblers to determine numbers moving as well as check seabird passage.
    Dungeness Bird Observatory is usually a good site with the patch outfall a good area for feeding seabirds like Little Gulls which are moving in numbers
    with the first returning Common Terns and Skuas. Great Skuas and seabirds like Divers and Grebes in big return movements as well as waders.
    Kind regards,Bertram.E.B.BREE in sunny Jersey.Many Franks.
