Garden observations from the weekend. Friday 22nd heard first Cuckoo moving through the woodland. Didn’t stay and moved quickly northward towards higher ground. Also saw first Swallows over the garden (pair) but they also moved on after a short spell of hawking around.
Plenty of singing birds daily including Chiffchaff and Blackcap with more distant Willow Warbler in next field over. Observed mating Woodpigeons, Collared Doves and Green Woodpeckers. Mistle Thrush, Goldfinches and Bullfinches also appeared paired up. Young Robin seen with parent and empty egg found on ground that looks like Song Thrush.
Flyover by two Greylag Geese was unusual sighting for the garden.
