Summer returns to the woods

It was my first visit of the year to the woods near Llanfair TH today. Although the air was cool, the sun was strong and with the bright blue sky and fluffy white clouds one couldn’t help but feel that spring is approaching fast.

The birds seemed to agree with this as I had great views of the resident Nuthatches, Treecreepers and a Greater Spotted Woodpecker plus the summer visitors, Blackcap,  Chiffchaff, Redstart and Pied Flycatcher. The spring collection is in!

A few pics….
