Patch tick today!

Long overdue (and really not sure why) - a green woodpecker this morning constituted the first record on patch since I moved here in 2006. Otherwise the fields close by are very quiet at the moment. I've been hoping for a repeat of 2011 when I had two singing quail here but no such luck this year. I ended up spending time watching the house martins gather mud after last night's thunder storm:


Guess they must be struggling if they are still nest building? Also this smart male yellowhammer singing this morning.
