Today Chiffchaffs were singing at Howick [3] and Allerdene House, Alnwick [1].

Also, going the opposite way, 16 Whooper Swans, 150 Barnacle Geese and 80 Pinkfooted Geese N at Howick.

Other signs of spring at Howick, several species now nest building including Grey Heron and Long tailed Tit.
On the Long Walk, Primroses, Lungwort and Colts foot in profusion, attracting Buff-tailed Bumblebee and Marmalade Hoverfly.

Common Toad and Red Squirrel both noted over the weekend just not by me!
