Linda, Sue and I walked up to our beautiful local church to carry out the March bird survey: suitably 'distanced' of course! Together with friends Sue and Peter, we've maintained monthly records of birds, insects and wild plants for over three years. Sometimes it's a pretty dismal couple of hours: the church is in a somewhat exposed location. Today, however, the weather was glorious and spring-like and there were lots of birds to look at! A first for the survey was a Little Owl that flew into the little copse, while a flock of several hundred Golden Plover was noteworthy.
