Lowton Bird Observatory, Day 2

Photo: Starling.
The song of my garden blackcap heralded the start of another glorious day while I ate breakfast this morning. It does my heart good to hear this song and he couldn't have timed it better given the current circumstances.

Three new garden ticks today since we went into lockdown, #23 grey heron, #24 long-tailed tit and #25 robin. A glorious day, I've been sat in the garden most of the afternoon. At least three buzzards soaring overhead, blackbirds, robins and dunnocks singing and plenty of blue tits, goldfinches and house sparrows, as well as at least two peacock butterflies.

Our goat willow tree starting to bloom, hopefully it will be in full bloom before the weather changes!
