Trees sky 8 March 2015

Warm in the sun, with a strong cold wind from the south.

Many signs of early spring in the last few days. Earlier in the week, a Chiffchaff offered a few weak chiffs and chaffs beside the Shire House. Primroses out beside the allotments, perpetual Skylark song along Firle Bostal.

Today, most small birds had their heads down. Unseen Long-tailed Tits whispering on the way up the hill, and Goldcrest.

A Green Woodpecker cried loudly from the escarpment, where the sun’s now high enough at 10am to warm the walk right down to the bottom.

Partridges’ mechanical noises down the Bostal. At New Elms pond, two drake Mallard loafing and a Moorhen prospecting again.
