The most interesting areas were not the kumquat gardens but the tomato fields! I have noticed for a while that those plots provide interesting habitat for some passerine birds, especially when the rows are not well kept (few chemical treatments), thus facilitating the development of weeds. For example, two skulkers, the Siberian Rubythroat and the Bluethroat, often forage in or around those fields.
Star bird of the day was Black-faced Bunting, the second time I have spotted this species in the area, with previous sighting also in March.

Very skittish bird
This one should have been the best of the serie, but...
This little brown jobbie was skulking slowly on the ground. I didn't found any key features to clinch the ID. Yellowish legs, buffy supercilium, blackish eyestripe, buffy flanks-wash. Any ideas ? A Bush Warbler (?) but which one...
