signs of spring at the reserve

                                           Blue tit making use of the nest box
                                                 trees looking more spring like

                                             Not too sure about the two birds, warblers not my strong point, would
                                             appreciate ID's, thanks

Yes - Especially if that was Saturday! Willow Warbler. There were 100's moving through in the morning, never seen so many, Chiff Chaffs were quiet until late Afternoon, Robins were well outdone & most unimpressed by the invasion. A lot did peel off & stick around with 15-20 clearly still in earshot of the feeding station. Should be a good year for these little blighters!
