Tuesday February 23rd 2016

Last few days have been out over Dalton and Lancelot with very little to report other than singing Song Thrushes at quite a few locations. Some lovely song being sung.  One bird in particular was mimicking telephones!  had this many years ago in Lancelot...

Today was nice and sunny though cold at first, but birds where singing away everywhere.
First time this year had Goldcrest singing - One on Slape Lane and then later two chasing one another in Lancelot Clark Storth.  Also had more this afternoon in the large conifer just by the Cropper memorial stone by the Abbots Hall Play area on the side of the River Kent. Wonder if these are passing birds or local breeders.  This is exactly the time of year when you get a lot of passing through birds.
