After the thaw......
After the thaw, the sun came out (not warm, but not bad) and nature started to make up for lost time. I believe this is Sycamore (or maybe Norway Maple?)The early Willow Warblers have moved on, but there's plenty of Chiffchaffing going on.
and a Starling
As a matter of record, I mamaged to twitch Steve Ray's Ring Ouzel on the clifftop at St Margaret's, but only distantly, after which it flew into the middle of some scrub and indulged in some pre-sleep singing - rather like a blackbird with a sore throat.
