Spring trying to break through around Low Cocklaw. Chiffchaffs now seem well esablished with singing heard every day since last Thursday (4th) - 20 days later than usual.

Big influx of approx 50+ Blackbird on Sunday (7th) with many of them still obvious in nearby New Mills Wood and in hedgerows.

Increased number of Woodcock about.

Similar signs of migration with 3 Red-breasted Merganser on Whiteadder at Cawderstanes.

Yellowhammer singing every day now.

Still getting good numbers of Tree Sparrow in local hedgerows.

Despite all this phenology, it still doesn't seem like we're a third of the way through April.
