Week ending 8th May - IRRI, TREES Lodge
A hot, dry week, ending with a huge blow out on Sunday when we caught the edge of a tropical storm passing to the south. Little to report on the farm, bar the absence of any interesting migrants! Even the Wood Sandpipers have disappeared, maybe they knew the storm was coming.
Up at TREES lodge the fig tree is again in fruit. Not much about on Sunday, bar a couple of Coppersmiths and some Bar-bellied Cuckoo-Shrikes, but I'm sure the action will pick up in the week.
