Sorry, I forgot to post this last week.
The weather gave me a couple of opportunities to walk round, albiet each being shorter than normal.
Last week I said that spring is in the air, well it certainly is. The flocks of birds have now become pairs. Listen to the bird song and you really feel the start of another exciting year.
These beautiful birds are virtually everywhere. They seek prominent places to claim territory and hope to attract a partner.
I was stunned by the song from a single Song Thrush. I spent several minutes trying to locate it and finally spotted it at the far side of the marsh area, singing from the top of a bush. Too far I am afraid for me to get a good image of it. But it was worth the search to hear its song.
Three of these were hunting for food amongst the bushes. They are fast movers and usually deep into the bushes.
My patience was rewarded with the above images.
Another bird that seems to spend most of its time in bushes. Hopping out to feed but rapidly returning if disturbed.
No sign of the Buzzard and the rabbits were enjoying the all too brief spell of sunshine. This tiny bunny seemed more curious than afraid as I approached.
I hope it quickly learns to be more wary. Another adult rabbit was in the typical posture when out in the open.
To be continued ......
