First real signs of spring today.
A new chiffchaff ringed in a couple of hours before work could have been a wintering bird but there were 2 singing males on the Meadow Trail today so it could have been a new arrival. A cracking male wheatear this afternoon on the reserve went to the top of the list and knocked black swan off the top spot...thankfully. Although it spent most of its time asleep, I don't think it had just arrived from Australia!!
