Silent Spring

Dan here.

Bluebells are blooming along Freeman's fringes, but bird-wise Spring seemed to be on hold today.

Stiff southwesterlies were chilling the parish this early evening. Very little was singing or calling and there was scarcely a sign of new arrival.

Some hirundines were scouring Freeman's Pools;  up to 12 swallows, another early-ish house martin and a single sand martin.


I had a bit more luck in the morning with 5 wheatears on the flood and about 5 willow warblers singing in the same area.
