It’s Official, Spring is here!

The first spring migrants, Chiffchaffs are back in our area!

On the 19/3 I visited Low Moor Banks and found a single male Chiffchaffs in song. I then went to Toad Holes Beck and found a further 3 birds. Raw Nook LNR also held 2 singing birds with Caldene fields having a probable passage bird on the following day.

We did some tree pruning at Raw Nook LNR on the 21/3 and just as we were finishing I glimpsed a nearby Tree Creeper which was great. But on the next tree was another TC which looked alot cleaner and smarter and I took this bird to possible be the male. Both birds then flew off together which is excellent news.

If they find a nest site it would be a new breeding record for the reserve.
