The weather forecast for the Easter weekend looked good. Wind from the east with reasonable temperatures every day. Normally this guarantees nice numbers and rarities. Monday and Tuesday before the Easter weekend there had already been significant migration so the expectations for high numbers of birds were somewhat tempered.

Alwin Borhem suggested to do a Big Day this coming weekend. The weather forecast was good so why not.

Just like last year, there is again a Melodious Warbler in the Maashorst. We actually had him expected earlier this year but the bad weather will probably be to blame.

Lesser Spotted Eagle in Brabant

Zaterdag was Saturday was Euro Birdwatch 2021. An event in which many migration sites in Europe participate. So we could not be missing from our migration site. The weather forecast was not the best but it would remain dry until late afternoon. The count started very quietly, but from 8 o'clock nice groups of Chaffinches and Meadow Pipits started to fly. There was plenty to count all morning and we even saw the first group of Common Buzzards this year.
