Spring is in the air....

  While on my work travels Ive been noticing a change .Although the Fieldfare and Redwings are still here , its the resident Birds that are coming alive! The Gold Finches have started to split from there flocks, the Green Finches are calling and showing in the air,  noisy House Sparrows in the hedges around the City, Blackbird nests appearing in customer gardens, Rooks putting the finishing touches to there nests and while eating my lunch on Wednesday last week,  parked up at  Bowthorpe lakes i turned the radio off , sat back and listened to the singing Sky Larks as they took to the air and descended to the ground. Managed  to watch one in particular , as it sung its heart out from a small mound on the grass , as a flock of around 30+ Linnets passed over head.-Spring is here!!!
Rooks- nest building
Fieldfare still here
