3rd March 2014
Finally a day off that the weather will allow for decent bird spotting.
Weather:- sunny, warm with a light breeze, turning dull.
Woods :- Usually suspects around, most happily singing away. Greater spotted woodpecker drumming.
Canal :- Again the usual suspects, but 7 moorhen, Canada goose, happily following me along the towpath and every little bird singing there little hearts out. So nice to hear.
Netherton Hill :- Female kestrel hovering over the hill, till she disappeared towards Dudley. Buzzard showing off nicely.
Raza :- 18 coots,3 great crested grebes, (hope they breed again this year) and a mute swan, amongst all the gulls.
Primrose's, snowdrops flowering and Hawthorne started to bud. Spring is finally arriving.
And a little something to keep you amused.
