Garden Birds :-
A singing Willow Warbler in the garden may be the first one in 20 years...I will have to search for my garden bird records sheet and check.


  1. Great about the Willow Warbler and that's a nice early Shuttle-shaped!

  2. That Dart bucks the trend Jerry, everything else is late !
    The WW was a nice surprise, they're a rarity in town so I hope this is a good sign that their numbers have increased as they have been in decline for a while around these parts
