A complete mix in the weather today. Woke up to find snow on the side of the hen-house, the sun has been beating down all day, the wind is persistently strong from the NW with occasional hail showers and its bloody freezing. Spring? I don't think so. Besides all that there where surprisingly some birds around Brough. 3 Blackcap, 2 Willow Warbler plus 1 each of Chiffchaff, Robin and a year tick Pied Flycatcher. Looks miserable for the rest of the week, but you never know.
