The phoney spring

Sunny weekends in February, they look like spring, they feel like spring, but they is not spring.  Two mornings on the patch produced singing, displaying, drumming and even a little nest building but only the faintest, quite possibly deceptive, whiff of movement. 

Spotted Redshank and two Greenshank at Goldcliff plus Water Pipit at Boat Lane on Friday; and Chiffchaff at Uskmouth today,... 

Urgh! It's still bloody winter.
