A Bird's-eye View on the Changing Landscape

Little Egret surveying the course of the stream
There wasn't a bridge there last spring

Green Woodpecker on beech trees,
wondering where the woods he nested in last year have gone

A pair of Common Buzzards close to Chalton Cross Farm

I love bird-watching at this time of year as one can see them so clearly on the still bare trees in the low rays of the sun.  Will they nest locally I wonder?
Yellowhammers and linnets are numerous still on Shanley fields, and I have heard skylarks singing and seen the first warbler of the year, or was it a chiff-chaff?
