This morning I decided to check an area of Pine forest compartments for early evidence of Woodlarks, especially given that this wonderful songster should very soon be singing and displaying over breeding territory.
The first birds of note was a party of uncounted Siskins which were wandering the forest, also lesser numbers of Redpolls were on the move. As predicted, Bullfinches were heard within mixed Birch/Pine woodland where they would have roosted overnight. Other songsters included Song Thrush and Mistle Thrush whilst a single Fieldfare overflew calling.
