Where are all the birds?

There are very few migrants around at the moment, most mornings we have been catching around 10 birds, with chiffchaffs and spanish sparrows in the ascendancy. A couple of savi's warblers was a nice start to last week and yesterday we had a beautiful male ruppells warbler. there were a few quails around the pistachio plot, but only 1 found its way into the nets and a hunting sparrowhawk managed to avoid them completely. With the recent cold front showing signs of disappearing lets hope the birds decide its time to move north.
