Countryside coming to life

I did the second of four breeding bird surveys at Cheshire Wildlife Trust’s Bagmere reserve this morning.  It was a chilly and slightly damp start but the weather wasn’t sufficiently poor to postpone the visit.

I’ve not been out in the Cheshire countryside much over the last two weeks and it has changed quite a lot with the plants starting to show their spring growth.

Our summer visitors are starting to arrive in good numbers and I recorded grasshopper warbler, willow warbler and swallow for the first time this year but there are still more to come.

Yet again, I didn’t record willow tit, which is disappointing but there are two more visits this spring to find them.
