4 March 2009

Finally, one bud was showing some pink on the magnolia in the cemetery this morning, which is more than 2 weeks later than last year.
I heard the male great spotted woodpecker drumming and managed to find him after much effort. A lot more difficult to find him in trees! After a few days of not finding the parakeets at the nest, one was in and the other standing guard this morning.
The long-tailed tits are still building their nest. A few times now in that area I have heard a great tit with a very noticeable song,the best way to describe it is extremely metallic. Weird.
