A lovely clear sunny spring day with blue skies all round.

This mornings dog walk was to woodland along the lane to look to see if any Chiffchaffs had arrived. They had! Three males to be precise, all singing away. One seen well in yellow sallow catkins looked typecast for the part.

At the lane end, a Stoat risked death by coming towards me along the main road. Luckily I flushed it into cover before a vehicle came along. Last weeks Long tailed Tit nest is almost finished now, with one bird adding extra lichens to the outer crust.

Elsewhere, a singing male Reed Bunting, a singing male Siskin and a ( you get the picture) singing male Nuthatch made for a pleasant stroll out.
