The month of birdsong

April seems to be the month when the most changes in the natural world. Wild plant growth seems to be supercharged in April, with a riot of colour along the lanes and in the field margins. On the farm there are celandines, bluebells, campion, three cornered leek, oxalis, freesias, brassicas and much more all in flower now. The nettles are nearly three feet high in places!

The birdsong this morning was exceptional and I managed to record some on my new audio recorder. A male blackbird was in full flow! What a treat...
