So then, dear reader, it is almost warm enough for it to be classified as spring.  Migrants are arriving at our shores.  Even those fictional beasts known as Hoopoes.  There is a mild southerly wind coming from the continent which will quite possibly bring summery birds with it.  There are still wintery birds around the fringes of this fair county.  What is a patch birder to do?

Gardening.

Get in!

The following species could be seen doing spring like activity during the day (singing, fighting, poking about in holes – that kind of thing).

Goldcrest

Great Spotted Woodpecker

Finches, Gold and Green

Tits, Blue, Great, Long-tailed and Coal

Blackbird

Robin

Pigeons and doves

Frogs

The frogs have been ‘at it’ for about two weeks now in the pond, but their inhibitions and shyness have gone and rather than disappear into the depths of the pond when humans are near they now have a reckless abandon verging on the exhibitionist.  The fecundity on display today could easily described as amphibian hardcore.

Here are some photographic images from the day.
