A spring visit to the Prairie de Tenu near Frossay with Ant in the hope of connecting with some early migrants or perhaps something a little bit different (I always fancy a Great Grey Shrike around these parts !). Alas, there was nothing particularly out of the ordinary but we did manage to get some excellent photos of a rather confiding female Kestrel along the road followed by a nice flock of Black-tailed Godwits busily feeding in the wet fields in preparation for their return north to their breeding grounds.
