I heard and saw my first lark of the year yesterday, soaring and singing its heart out in a bright blue sky. Absolutely magical. I always hear the first one above the fields about this time and mark it on the calendar and rejoice that summer is on its way. It lifts the spirits like nothing else.
And first pied wagtail today!

I couldn't believe it when I saw and heard my first skylark on Valentines Day! Lifted my spirits too though I thought it was a bit early for the poor wee thing.
