Thursday 11th February 2016



A couple of Ringos have been returning to check out their patch more regularly from the last day of January onwards. Other signs of "spring" are the odd Linnet returning plus a Skylark heading north. Shouldn't really be talking about spring as there was a frost this morning but as the days get longer the Great Tits & Songies are singing their little hearts out, the Little Owls are courting and Mr Peregrine is on guard early morning. The only other thing of note is 4 Canada Geese heading south. Most of our Canada records are in the spring as they wander around looking for new sites to infest but, as records of this species have been declining in recent years, maybe beautify may be a kinder word as that is why they were introduced to this country in the first place.
