Changing nature: Too-early Bluebells (in numbers not just the odd one) serenaded by too-early Chiffchaff’s. This one a long way up in a big Ash tree, in this part of East Sussex where I’ve already started seeing Ash die-back, so soon this sight may not be so common. Now I’ve just had a message from a friend in mid-Wales (thanks Liz) who has just seen her first Swallow and Willow Warbler! Times are certainly changing. Conditions: After thunder and tremendous downfalls of rain last night, a calmer, cloudy day. Temperature: Max 12- Min 5c.

Like many birds, Chiffchaffs chose a high vantage point from which to sing
