Why does it always rain on me?

This has been the driest winter here I can remember, apart from the last 5 days when the rain has hardly stopped! Just in time for spring. Fortunately it's mild, the Lapwings are displaying, Stonechats singing and there does seem to be decent numbers of Reed Buntings and Skylarks around after a few poor years. Hopefully, they'll get decent weather for imminent nesting. Time will tell, as the breeding bird census starts soon. But at least the rain keeps the people away!

The damp weather also seems to have started an amphibian orgy!!

Bird of the day: 8 (dark-bellied) Brent Geese - a good spring record, brings the list up to 108 here this year.
