Spring is in the air...

Yesterday saw a walk around a different area of Wiltshire chalk. There has definitely been a switch in mindset for the resident birds towards breeding. Some are already well on their way with blackbirds collecting worms to feed their chicks, others are still getting themselves sorted, like in this picture:

Now I've heard of kung-fu pandas, I wasn't aware there was such a thing as kung-fu pheasants... Other sightings of note included lapwing displaying and nesting, lots of corn bunting and yellowhammer singing and more skylarks than you could shake a stick at, the Wiltshire chalk is truly a special place.NA
