A much needed patch update!

A beautiful day today, and a much needed trip to a recently very neglected patch.

Highlights included 7 chiffchaffs on route, 2 dippers together by the river, at least 2 grey wagtails (1 below), a sparrowhawk near the house, 5 tufted duck on Old Wheel Dam, a curlew seen from Stacey Bank and – best of all – 3 tree sparrows on Stacey Lane, the first I’ve seen for a good long while.

Grey Wagtail

The Springlike vibe was jarred slightly by a reminder of winter – 2 redwing on the path near the house – but soon returned with the appearance of a comma butterfly a bit further on.
