    Heard my first ChifChaff of the year today on the lotty, any of you guys heard one earlier or any other early summer visitors ?.

    ♫ Chiffchaff - song / call / voice / sound.

    Certainly the earliest ive heard one for a few years.

    I'm not sure if in would be able to pick it out from the other birds in the garden, though I heard my owl last night. I hope it nest in the garden again this year

    Ive sat here for the last half hour listening to the birds while having a coffee...I can tell a blackbird but after that I'm lost, lovely birdsong all day today, would love to be able to name each one.

    We still have winter migrants up here, Pink Footed Geese seem to be moving north, so maybe spring is springing after all
