Ravenous Long-tailed Tits
Great Spotted Woodpecker
Gadwall - been wanting to get the maroon feathers on the drake for some time
I went out sticking up posters at the usual places this morning as there are still a few gaps for next term, especially on Tuesday pm, Wednesday pm & both sessions on Thursday. Popped in to Tophill Low before heading back home. It was great to hear my first Willow Warbler of the year, but the prevailing mood was that Spring hasn't quite sprung yet. There were a few signs such as the mass of Anenomes at Burton Bushes, and the basking Grass Snake (which slipped away 4 times), but the cold 50 mph winds were an indication that winter wasn't quite over! I was given some great info about the Tophill Grass Snakes, so I hope to be able to get some better images soon! It's almost impossible to believe but Richard Hampshire's much better pic of a Grass Snake on the Hull Valley Sightings page for April was taken with his mobile phone!!!
