A beautiful sunny morning and some suitably spring-like bird activity observed! The full list as follows:

Mistle Thrush - a nest was located (see Simon's photo) and at least one youngster was seen. Parent birds nearby. Excellent stuff!

Coal Tit - 1 in song

Blue Tit - a few heard and seen

Great Tit - several heard

Robin - 1 or 2

Blackbird - several birds seen

Magpie - 1 or 2

Carrion Crow - a few

Goldfinch - still lots of birds singing from the trees

Collared Dove - 1 or 2 heard

Woodpigeon - a few

House Sparrow - a few around mainly in adjacent gardens

Jay - we watched a couple behind the pond trying to collect nesting material by breaking off twigs 

Thanks to those who came along - see you next month
