When the north wind blows......... generally see b*gger all, especially in Spring! It has been cold this past week in the UK and yesterday was no exception when I was out surveying at a site in the north Pennines. I had virtual full cloud cover with a northerly breeze and it was cold. The picture below encapsulates how bleak it was!

It was quite a surreal experience hearing a Fieldfare calling at the same time as Willow Warblers! I didn't record a great deal but the best of very little included five Willow Warblers, a Fieldfare, a Siskin, a Linnet, two Lesser Redpolls, a Blackcap and a Buzzard.

Hopefully normal spring weather will return soon!
