Not so rosy

Tried the Murat river valley for cranes, etc., unfortunately, as with every other major river we have seen the Murat is being stripped of it's aggregate. Two of the three former 'Demoiselle islands' had JCBs sat on them (despite the IBA status of the site), the agriculture in the area also appears to be intensifying, not looking good for the future for virgo here. Lots of Rose-coloured Starlings though (must think up a caption for the pic).
