This morning in our area I had excellent views of a pair of bullfinches nest building and with another 3 adults seen nearby the species is doing really well here.  There were no new migrants in apart from a House Martin on nearby Common Road.  A pair of Linnets were observed at the top end of Toad Holes Beck showing signs of courtship..

Male Linnet

Herring Gulls are still in the area with 4 at Caldene fields and I think the female Ring-necked Parakeet which spent the winter in our area may have found a mate as she has not been seen now for over 2 weeks.  A Common Green Shieldbug was at Caldene field first spring record this year.
