The swifts are here
Been a pleasant weekend weather wise. The farm seems to be slowly crawling towards Summer. Caught the first juvenile Robin in the mist nets yesterday and the Coots have a plethora of young coming through. The Swans are re-trying after the nest was swamped away in the recent rain. Spring appeared to splutter through, the good weather allowing the birds to pass straight over the top of the farmlands. Which for them is probably a godsend. But for a site that has been viciously raped by a heartless company when it comes to the environment, i don't think we did to bad.
