A ton and a half!

At some point tonight or early tomorrow, the 'visits' count on Birds of the Heath will reach 150,000! Considering I don't have any adverts / click-throughs / commercial links, that's something of which I'm quietly proud!

Today I met Strump regulars Brian and Mike for an early morning walk-round. Nothing outrageous, but lots of signs of Spring. Black-headed Gulls and Marsh Harriers were lugging nest materials, while every other bush held a newly-arrived Warbler: Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers were everywhere! Lots of Sedge Warblers and Wrens too....

Three - perhaps four - Cuckoos were calling along the riverside and woodland edge, while plenty of Buzzards drifted through. First Odenata of the year were two Large Red Damselflies!
