Garden ringing, and Spring is here!

A bit of garden ringing today, followed by a walk around the lakes and woods here at Wyken Hall.

On the reservoir were a pair of Egyptian Geese with 5 newly fledged chicks - the first fledglings I've seen this year. Over in Rushgreen Grove my first Chiffchaff of the season was singing - feels like spring is definitely here!

As for the birds caught in the garden, nothing exceptional:
