Its Singing Spring

Even though this weekend has been horrible in terms of the weather, this didn't stop me going out.

In the morning I went with my Dad to walk the dog and as soon as we got out of the village 3 Meadow Pipits were feeding right in front of us.

Then after hearing Yellowhammer and seeing a buzzard being mobbed my 2 Rooks, I found a Moorhen in between the hedgerow, this is quite a rare bird on my patch. Then a Long-tailed Tit collects nest material.

Later, I managed to find my first definite Chiffchaff, not one but two singing males!!!!!! , a new bird for the year a lovely adult Willow Tit. , also we saw plenty of Chaffinches and Hares.
