Badby bird notes for March 2017 –

In early March we had three siskins and two redpolls around the feeders for a couple of days. Other than that, a highlight has been the continual presence for several weeks of a pair of long-tailed tits which are constantly coming and tapping on the windows – presumably attacking their own reflections!

There are plenty of signs of spring now with lots of dog’s mercury, lesser celandine and wood anemone out and bluebell plants on the way in Badby Woods.

Chiffchaffs can now be heard singing, advertising their arrival for the summer. Resident birds such as wren, song thrush and dunnock are also making themselves heard in the village along with skylarks and yellowhammers over and around neighbouring fields.
