14th to 15th February

With spring-like weather on both days, many birds burst into song: Meadow and Rock Pipits began their song-flights, Goldcrests and the male Firecrest were singing around the plantation and many other birds also started. There was still very little of any consequence to note, however, in this pre-spring lull. On the 14th, singles of Ringed Plover, Snipe and Water Rail were recorded. On the 15th, three Linnets were seen in the hay fields, and three Woodpigeons were seen at Nant.
