In Guernsey the north-westererly large Channel Isle a pair of Fan-tailed Warblers are present at Port Soif with Hoopoe nearby recently arrived although they over winter occasionally here like the three Snowy Owls
hanging around here after a cold February with many migrants returning now here the Fan-tailed Warbler male is singing now with entuhusiasm so will likely breed soon like birds did a number of times in Jersey to the south-east where migrants are funneling through including seabirds, wildfowl, waders and passeerines like litorralis Rock pipits in smart breeding plumage. On the Normandy mainland many migrants including Cattle Egrets which breed now there like Great Egrets, Bluethroats, Savis Warblers, Stilts, Storks of both species, three species of Harriers, Nightingales and Kentish Plovers all doing well and many Black Redstarts now around like the Redstarts which breed here which aare coming back now with Woodlarks, Tree Pipits and mnay singing Willow Warblers.Spotted Eagle around of the race fulvescens in the Somme estuary area and many Spoonbills which are geting ready to breed here in a few weeks time. Big seabird passage offshore in particular Bonxies and Terns returning north now in the Channel where Divers, Grebes and duck are concentrating like the waders on the move includding Avocets and Godwits.
