The first Chiffchaff(s) of the year singing their hearts out at cullaloe this morning. One of my favourite days of the year which for me marks 'turning the corner' into spring. Last year this happened on the 12th of March, so a little bit later this year. Additionally in the last couple of days some common birds that were mysteriously unticked have shown up - Curlew, Pied Wagtail and Reed bunting. Still waiting for Little Grebe.
