Is it April?
I wasn't sure if it was April this morning. I was greeted by both Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler singing in the garden which was cool! I took the dogs for a walk behind the house and came across a flock of at least 15 Yellow Wagtail feeding amongst the cows and horses feets. Nearby I had a brief Wheatear on the muck heap with at least 40 Meadow Pipit and 9 Skylark feeding amongst the freshly cut bean field. Several small flocks of Swallows were recorded, all heading strongly low north. All of the above, and what with the showers throughout the day it certainly felt like April!
