More Chiffchaffs back on territory today.

0545hrs to 0645hrs.
Absolutely superb "Dawn Chorus" which seemed to go on over a hour and wherever I travelled around the village the chorus seemed to follow. It made me think! just how many Blackbirds have we got around here?

Chiffchaff (Dale) is back near to Dalton Hall, along with a nearby Chiffchaff (Lad), they have obviously arrived overnight. Also Slap is back and heard calling over Slape Lane towards the Vicarage Lane End. Goldcrest calling earlier from Hordley House/Burton House areas.

0730hrs. Another Chiffchaff to report, just in and new one for me to record, this time at Orchard Close and I have called him "Archie".
