29th March: Wheatear

There's some birds that really signify the start of Spring and for me it's the Wheatear. The first Wheatear of the year always, whether it be early or late March, gives me that rush of adrenalin that Spring has really arrived. Even though my first Sand Martins appeared a fortnight ago it is, for me, the Wheatear that is the harbinger of Spring . So one at Pit-house West this morning was just as welcome as any before it.
