Thursday19th April

A really warm start to the day, and Brian’s sheep are starting to lamb.
Willow Warblers are singing everywhere, a few Grasshopper Warblers are also singing in the usual places in the area of the new paths and on top of the tip.

The Stonechat males can be seen on the top of the bushes, while the females are already sitting on eggs.

At the feeders, the goldfinch are devouring the niger, both male and female Bullfinch are still visiting, the jays have not been for a while but we have a drake Mallard that comes every day, it’s mate also used to visit but must now be sitting somewhere near.
