Since the beginning on March I have seen good numbers of wee yellow burdies in and around the hawthorns. Very distinctive call. I thought they were sisken but now know that they are yellow hammers! Thank you Barry
While I was up on the Glebe today (Wednesday March 18) had my first sighting of a butterfly for 2009. It was a rather fine Peacock, which was soaking up the warm sun. I also had sightings of both green and greater spotted wood pecker, robin and blackbird.
