Migration over Jerze

Some birds were on the move last night, with southerly winds predominating along the approaching cold front. Here’s the radar from last night:

As for the next few days, the winds should turn northerly as the front makes its slow passage over our area, shutting down migration completely. Keep your ear to the sky on the next night with southerly winds, because after a few days of backed up migration we could see the first big push of new birds from the south.

On another note, after missing both the Long-billed Murrelet, and the Ivory Gull, the curse of the chase has finally been broken. Here’s a photo of the bird:
