Well Dave
I had not noticed the bird decline but you appear to be right .
There's no where near as many types as usual around here .
They may be just nesting later because of the weather .
Oh hold on Robin in the garden , couple of blue tits and yep a wren
First time this year . Mind no spuggys yet , or starlings .

I have been looking for Buzzards over the last month and have seen the odd one but non in any great numbers like I saw a month ago in that area, then they were all over in groups, There are Skylark, Curlews, Oyster Catchers in some of the fields near the farm and I have heard the Owls but not seen em yet this year, Today on Lead Road leads to the crossroads on A68 from Wheelbirks ice cream parlor. might be a bit far over for Dave, Saw a Peacock right next to the road, a Jay flew across road, not more than 10 feet in front of us, loads of crows jackdaws at Langley Wink at home we have loads of Sparrows, Blackbirds, Thrushes, Robins, Tits, Woodpeckers, Tree Creepers, etc.
