I decided to split the afternoon, I could here the Gas Cannons and chainsaws again, which isn't good news, so I spent an hour walking over to the lakes, and then 90 minutes back at home in my shed (garden hide) trying to get some bird photo's to fill the blog folder ;-)
Walking to the lakes via Tree Nursery, little was seen, just a DUNNOCK and a MAGPIE, then cutting across the edge of the Wet woods where the chainsaws were noisily going, nothing but the spring call of GREAT TITS was heard, I did take note of the now green carpet of Bluebells now spread across the woodland floor though (below)

|Coot ( I like Coots!)|
Walking back home, one of the KESTREL pair was seen hunting over at the Greenhouse Grounds, and a SPARROWHAWK sped past me as I walked along Ashes Lane.
Once home I set up in my shed and took a few images of the garden regulars, no species I haven't posted before, but nice blog brighteners for the future, here's a couple of tasters :-)
|LONG TAILED TIT, at last I got an image of on the 'Blog Log' as well as in the sunlight!|
|GREEN WOODPECKER is now a permanent fixture, and seems to accept the clicking of the camera :-)|
