Signs of Spring

There's lots of activity at the moment as things slowly drift towards warmer times. When we the sun has come out it has brought the birds to life and they're pairing up and territory setting. I've had some local Bullfinch brightening up my lunchtime walks and there always seems to be Goldcrest and Treecreeper singing. Neither of these are that easy to spot and require some patience, but I have that in abundance when it comes to birds, and sadly not much else.

We're now midway through March and I'm seeing reports of returning summer migrants already, so hopefully soon I'll have some pictures of these to bring you. It will certainly encourage me to get out and look more, if I actually needed any more encouragement. I'm always looking and listening. Even better is that the sun is rising much earlier and I can get out before most people have even put their kettle on or thought of leaving the house. I love this time of year, when I can reclaim nature for myself on a cold bright morning.

    I was watching the return of the Goldfinches outside my window earlier today... the Bullfinches must be close behind. These are lovely shots! YAM xx

  4. Hello,
    The Bullfinch is a beautiful bird. Your Treecreeper looks just like our Brown Creeper. Great sightings and photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.

  5. Hello Adam :=)
    Lovely shots of both the Bullfinch and the Treecreeper. I never see the Bullfinch, but occasionally do see the Treecreeper. They used to come to my feeders and bird table but now I see them creeping up trees on my land and in the park, The difficulty is being able to photograph their ever spiralling movements. Well done for capturing this cute little climber.
    All the best.

  6. Nice pics of the bullfinch and the creeper.

  7. I like the early morning light on the Treecreeper.

  8. Gorgeous and professional photos of 'signs of Spring' ~ our feathered friends ~
