Spring may have finally sprung, with Cramlington year-ticks accumulated this afternoon and evening:
Willow warbler in full orchestral song at West Hartford this afternoon - maybe 5+ singing, two sand martin and a belated addition of Jay too.
Later, to the East of West, three wheatear in the ploughed field behind the football pitch - Cramlington birders duly alerted, though PA had clearly left the mobile at home.
At Laverock, a minimum of 4 tree sparrow on the territory side of the patch and a few barn swallow too.
Chiffies abundant... it's finally starting to happen...
