Thread: First lark

  1. #1

    Default First lark

    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.

    First pair of Yellow hammers yesterday. Always a joy to see those and think that we are lucky to have them in Caithness as believe that their numbers are in decline(?), sadly.

    Been meaning to go a walk along Yellowhammer track here in Caithness. Saw 1 at Tarbet Ness back in February.

    We are lucky to have Yellowhammers here - there is a pair that visit the bird table sporadically and the most I've seen in one time is 6!
