A wicked storm hit Hungary yesterday. At about 2pm our windows were rattled by hail-stones and a strong wind blew everything not tied down right round the garden. In towns across the country cars and buildings were damaged. What's going on ? It was March the 1st! The first day of spring some say. I think the frogs and butterflies that emerged last week in the warm weather got a shock, and all those passage waders that are pouring onto the wetlands of the Great Plain probably wished they had stayed in Africa or the Middle East a bit longer...
