Spring has returned !

The bushes are full of Willow Warblers this morning, most of them singing their beautiful trilling warble typically fading away with with a slight flourish. There was also a Whitethroat (my first this year) singing from deep from within a bramble bush. A yellow wagtail (another first! ) flew east and then a single Swallow and a House Martin (yet another first for me! ) flew in from off the sea. Three Wheatears were feeding along the tideline.
Just 10 Brent Geese seem to be in the harbour but few winter duck are still around and it really feels as if winter is now finally a thing of the past...lets hope so !
