First birdsong! (1 Viewer)

I had a nice surprise this crisp, sunny morning - a Mistle Thrush in full song. Well, i guess they can be starting to nest build in 4 months or so! Funnily enough, Mistle Thrush isn't a bird i often see around here, and yet the habbo is perfect - horse fields and sports fields with adjacent mature trees. I think i need to pay closer attention to the bird life under my nose..
A Great Tit also sang heartily this morning too. :)

A Coal Tit in full song (albeit briefly) on Llys Helyg, Great Orme, Llandudno yesterday in beautiful sunny, still weather.
However, i'm pretty sure it was in response to me playing a cheeky bit of YBW on my phone, as it bombed over and burst into song. So not sure it really counts.
Also, a Woodpigeon in song, perhaps the last one i'll hear in their (often rather late) breeding season, perhaps not, we'll see.

Was lovely to hear a Cheshire Song Thrush in full song this evening, after a bit of a practice warm-up a couple of days ago. Full volume, all the phrases, just slightly less energetic than in Spring! 🦜

Wednesday a Stock Dove singing nr Dunham Park, perhaps a late breeder? Do they sing from within their nesting holes?, it sounded somewhat muffled!.. 🤔🤷‍♂️

Coal Tit singing again on the Great Orme a couple of weeks ago - without me playing YBW to get it in a tizz. 🦆
