Bird song

Over the last couple of weeks there has been an increase in the amount of bird song with various tits and Bullfinches being the most vocal. Today though there were 2 welcome additions to the chorus. Both were quite cautious and didn't seem to want to risk straining their vocal muscles but were none-the-less a joy to hear. On the way into work this morning a Robin was singing from a neighbour's garden - presumably the bird that has over wintered in the garden and on the way home a Blackbird was also warming himself up.

I've checked through my notebooks and saw that 3 years ago there were already singing Skylarks in Maridalen at this time in March. With so much snow and continuing minus temperatures it is difficult to see any singing Skylarks there until well into April this year. Something to look forward to.....
