Checking on the patch

I feel a bit guilty, I haven't been able to check my local patch since I saw the male merlin a couple of weeks ago and it has made me wonder what I've been missing. So, I took a walk this morning up over the fields in beautiful sunshine and it seemed just like Spring was here. At least 5 singing skylarks and 4 displaying male yellowhammers in a relatively short distance but the small flocks of fieldfare were a reminder that we're not quite into warmer weather yet...
