Spring has sprung

There is a real feel of spring in the air today. The birds, well the ones who are here, are getting into song, the trees and shrubs are showing a haze of green and the first butterflies and bees are on the wing.
Down at Maple Lodge the Cetti's warbler and wager rail were on good form from rotunda hide. There are two male Cetti's in song but so far no definite sightings of a female/ pair. Fingers crossed hoping they might breed.
