Heard chiff-chaffs, skylarks and a buzzard then saw several swallows flying around.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

Just seen a largish bird on garden gate and few feet away. I thought it was a wood pigeon, but queried my thought and got the bins out.  Studied my bird books and I think it was a Sparrowhawk.  ( The other  choice could be a juvenile cuckoo, but the head and eye wasn't right)  Very beautiful.  then it flew away in the direction of were the sparrows are nesting in the eaves.    I wonder .     Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

The beak should be a dead give away for ID, straight for Cuckoo or Pigeon and hooked for a Spar .

Lots of Red Kites around yesterday, usually all Buzzards in this area .
I suspect their normal hunting grounds are underwater :nowink:

Well you could knock me down with a feather... I have just seen the first House Martin and it was in South Ayrshire too! That is really, really early for them!
