Badby bird notes  May 2017 –

Spring is in full swing with most summer migrants having arrived. Willow warblers, notable for their almost complete absence around Badby in recent years, have been heard singing around the village and in the woods. Other warblers to join the early arrivals chiffchaff and blackcap have been whitethroat and lesser whitethroat.

Overhead, swallows, swifts and house martins can be seen. Two house martins have just started to inspect the nest under our eaves so we’re hoping for nesting to start soon.

A scan of the sky, at the moment, will almost certainly produce a sighting of at least one buzzard and often a red kite too.  RP
