We're not twitchers, not by a long chalk, but love watching the comings and goings on our bird feeders. We get quite a few and spend nearly as much on wild bird seed as we do our chicken food.

The fields are surrounded by dense native hedgerows of hawthorn, blackthorn, alder and hazel. There are also a few self-seeders like holly and yew, giving a little bit of year-round green.  Our first Red Kite sighted this year.

The first swallow arrived on the 17th April (previous years 6th, 14th, 7th April)
