Liplje around home
Incredible temperatures again today which are forcing spring on rapidly.
Pleased to have the Middle spot moving around home staking its territory for the first time today.
At least 2 Great spots drumming regularly now.
Blackbirds have only started singing for the last few evenings, still somewhat subdued fashion.
Yellowhammer also started singing about a week ago while the Wood Lark is a new arrival and a very welcome one today.
May be my first starlings in Liplje !

There are new flowers to be found almost by the day including Primrose, Squill, 
Wild strawberry, Trout lilly (Erythronium dens-canis) Pulmonaria, Bugle ( Ajuga reptans), Speedwell sp. and Red deadnettle. Have also seen the first cherry blossom.
