spring is almost sprung

Well it is if you count chiffchaff as the first migrant of the year. But a little gull from the kitchen window and ring ouzel from the back door are two good birds and new for the house list.

As for that scaup, which was incidentally also in the kitchen, it managed to escape the cooking pot but I'm still hopeful for a long distance ringing recovery...

A few earlier species that I'd forgotten about including goldcrest and shoveler moves my nicely past the ol' bill onto 91 species and 58.96%

Happy days
