  1. Last weekend a group of long-tailed tits were spotted in the trees at the North end of the Orchard. A very recognisable little bird. Listen out for their characteristic ‘si si si’ call.

  2. Walking through the Orchard this morning I could not fail to notice how alive it is now with the sound of birds and in particular the calls of blue tits and coal tits. Looking for a mate and somewhere to nest. After yesterday’s horrendous weather, they certainly think that spring is on its way!
