At last a hint of warmth in the sunshine.
Walked around a
Aston End and up the river Beane (reasonable flow for the time of year so maybe the water table is recovering).
Not a great deal to report. Little signs of spring with virtually no flowers out, and few trees and bushes have any sign of leaves breaking. Even the willow catkins are still in bud.
Two separate pairs of Grey Partridge made a change as it's normally red Legs around here now. Five Buzzards displaying over High Wood and New Wood, and the pair of Red Kites are still present. Heard the Little Owl a bit north of the paddocks but could not locate it. From the ford, up the river to the plantation by Long Lane I counted five Chiffchaffs.
