Wanted to be upbeat today so what better than Ian Drury to provide today’s title-obvious really!
I saw my first Sand Martins (great) today while getting a soaking doing the monthly bird survey by the River Severn. Saw Redshank as well so all harbingers of Spring. I hope those of you reading this blog are able to enjoy the Primroses, Daffodils and Forsythia that brighten up the world, as well as the Spring Migrants heading our way. May be difficult if you are shut away somewhere. It seems to me that Bird watching is one of the few outdoor activities that we can do safely at the moment.
My last Story Telling at Wick Court this afternoon with our visitors from Maidstone. Not sure when I will be performing stories next-likely to be months.
Below the bird with the longest migration-a real endurance test-if you don’t know what it is answer tomorrow with some facts.
