Spring feeling for the birds

                                    Yes, I,m afraid its gulls again
         To be different this one has a blade of grass hanging from it.


                 You,ve got to admit they,re a handsome bird,

A bright spring like day with plenty sunshine and a warm SW>4 bringing the temperature up to 9 deg in the garage doorway and probably higher in the sun.
The conditions enticed the birds around the car park to get up and start some song going with Robin, Wren and Dunnock up on top of the conifers marking out their territory.
A pair of Collared Doves were cooing most of the morning and one of the resident Blackbirds was carrying nest material into its annual nest area.
Foxhill park at midday was quiet overhead with just the usual scattering of Common and BH gulls.
Dont let this lull in the winter weather get you too excited, we,ve never gone through a February without snow in Queensbury yet.

You were on a heat wave today up there - 9c at Qb'y in January!

Nice shots of the Common Gulls as well.
