Spring is trying to spring, and I've noticed plenty going on out there.

  • Magpies and rooks are particularly noticeable collecting material for their nests.
  • Tits are creeping along tree branches picking at the buds looking for insects.
  • Birds are singing lustily.
  • It remains extremely damp pretty much everywhere. I bet there's a hosepipe ban within a month!
  • Herons are nesting in the park.

  1. Locally, the Rooks, Crows, Magpies and Jackdaws are struggling against the high winds. It is so good to see so many of them though.
    Shame that there in no Web-cam at St Albans, I have only ever seen single Herons and it would be so interesting to see a lot at once.

  2. Nice one in the doggerel below sometimes “bird” is “boid”.
    While frequently attributed to Ogden Nash or ee Cummings the author of this amusing nonsense – known as “Spring In The Bronx” – is Anonymous.
    Spring is sprung, the grass is ris.
    I wonders where the birdies is.
    They say the birds is on the wing.
    Ain’t that absurd?
    I always thought the wing was on the bird.

  3. Demetrius – that’s a nice piece of verse, especially with the Bronx twang.
