I have always thought, correct me all you twitchers, that Valentines Day is when the birds get together and started building nests. Maybe they are loud because they are trying to get attention SunnyD. I saw a flock of birds fly over me this afternoon which I couldn’t identify. The size of a blackbird but with an undulating flight like a finch, maybe redpolls.

Thanks Jazzy. Magpie tweaking a huge nest in a tree, garden 2 doors down this afternoon. I’m not a lover of them given they like to eat the young of others. We had a pheasant walk through too. Lovely to see that.
There is a HUGE tree at the end of our garden but it's in the neighbors garden. It's like the community hub for birds, the bird song is incredible and we see so many different types flying in and out throughout the day
There is a lot to be said for being part of a group, and the support and friendship that is gained from this.
I had a walk round my local park yesterday. I sat in the rose garden and had my coffee, a robin came and stood next to me. He stayed for ages whilst I chatted to him. It was lovely. The squirrels, also, are getting very tame and will almost take nuts from your hand. I are so lucky to have this lovely park so close by.
There seem to be an awful lot of bird loving people on here.
In the back field it has been water logged for months now so there are pools of water dotted everywhere. One large pool that runs quite the length of the field fence close to the back of our house (thankfully not high enough to flood!) is housing a pair of Water Hens. It has been lovely watching them pop in and out of the hedge, swimming in the pool and feeding off the drier ground. Sadly the finer weather will bring with it drier ground and so I do wonder what will happen as the water recedes and disappears.
In the adjacent field there is a permanent pond in the middle and this year there is a pair of swans

I do love nature Sunny Days. Yesterday afternoon I recorded what I think is a Song Thrush. If it’s the same one as last year, it always perches high up in the same tree and sings every evening. I am going to see if I can attach it on here.
Big aaawww going on here, our ram, Rambo, has been a busy boy, twin lambs and a single so far, absolutely no romance involved with Rambo, at least male birds sing and use feather displays to please their girlfriends 🥰
