There's no doubt Spring is here now, the first Chiffchaffs arrived this week and many of the resident birds are well on with things now, the first Butterflies were noted with Brimstones and Small Tortoiseshells on the wing and Bats were also taking advantage of the good weather. I nipped down to Strensall Common this morning hoping to connect with a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker seen recently, bit of a long shot really and sure enough there was no sign of it today, a few Great Spots were very active and a couple of Jays showed well plus a Wood Lark was back on site and singing although only intermittently.

Sparrowhawks were displaying early in the week
