Well hello the sun came out!!!
I decided that I'd head for the forest and see if there were any migrants about.
With the sun shining the birds were singing. It's lovely to hear and all the regulars were in good voice (finches, tits, woodpeckers, nuthatch etc).
There were eight grebes on the lake but some were lone birds, one pair seem to have a nest - we can but hope. Alas there were no Swallow and Martins.
The trees make some interesting patterns
As I was waiting for the cafe to open I heard a familiar sound I had been missing for a while.
yup the first Blackcap of the year.
It was a pleasant stroll with lots of Chiffchaffs back now.
And where to now? I may not make Rye Meads next weekend so I went there!
Chiffchaffs and Cetti's Warbler in abundance and there a few Blackcap as well.
The Konik ponies.
This was my favourite bird
Who are you looking at down there?
