Some signs of spring

At last, some signs of spring at Druridge.

First and most important - my first 'proper' migrant - a chiffchaff. It wasn't chiffing or chaffing, just 'wheeting' in the bushes at the far end of the big pool.

Some other signs of spring:

Willow catkins

Coltsfoot in flower

As well as the chiffchaff, I also added yellowhammer and blue tit to the year-list on my tour of the patch which included a visit to Chibburn Preceptory and High Chibburn Farm.

89 chiffchaff
90 blue tit
91 yellowhammer
