A nice sunny mild day makes Jack a happy boy...

A couple of walks around the patch revealed 12 Sand Martins down at the Haven, and 2 or 3 Willow Warblers at the pond. Both patch year ticks. Also 3 Blackcap, 5 Swallow and many singing Chiffchaffs made migrant watching worthwhile. 2 Canada Geese and a Greylag flew south, and single Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell around the garden were my first butterflies of the year.

A nice Brown Hare has spent a day or two just over our drive wall, while 6 in the back field and 2 in Village wood made for a veritable Hare fest!

My phone has recovered and picks up emails, but no luck on the PC so I have enlisted professional help for next week.
