A visit to Clouds hill yesterday got a much needed first of the year. A rather lovely Willow Warbler. I have heard the odd one over at Arne before yesterday but this one was the first I’d actually seen. This is my first spring at Clouds hill so will be very interesting to see what comes through. Last autumn was pretty decent so things shouldn’t be too dissimilar this spring. During the session I also got 6 Chiffchaff which wasn’t bad considering the clear skies and moderate NE breeze which messes up a few of my net rides.
Here’s a shot of the lovely little yellow critter.
