Not fresh and bracing. Raw and unpleasant. The only birds of note were 2 Med Gulls (one in breeding plumage, the other nearly so) and a single Knot. As I walked along the shoreline waiting for spring to arrive, I thought about something I read last week in the WOS bird report. A Whimbrel was ringed in May 2012 at Llansantffraed. Six years later it was taken by an Eagle Owl. Not taken out for a spot of lunch. Eaten.
