Some local birding recently has shown that things are really hotting up with nesting activity and courtship. Birds are starting to move back from their wintering grounds and heading to their inland breeding sites, or at least, they are taking a break on the way for a rest. A great time to get out and observe what's about and going on.
A Nuthatch, with what looks like a peanut.
The first Oystercatcher of the year. They'll be off to find suitable nesting areas soon.
A Great Spotted Woodpecker that has been drumming on this dead branch.
