A fall of Chiffchaff

A lovely sunny afternoon at the Brickworks today. The car thermometer read 14°C

Birds of particular interest

At least 10 singing Chiffchaff around the site. Many of these were likely to be migrants, newly arrived.
A Tawny Owl gave one burst of song at about 14:30 (my first record of this species here)
1 drumming Great Spotted Woodpecker, 1 calling
3 Green Woodpeckers, one of which called
1 singing Song Thrush
Also numerous common species singing around the site

Butterflies spotted

2 Comma
2 Peacock
(also had 1 Small Tortoiseshell last week)

Flowering plants included

Lesser Celandine
Colt’s Foot
Ground Ivy

If I get the chance, I’ll upload a few photos next week.
