Willow Warblers early

The first this year was at Cromwell Bottom LNR on 30th March (apologies to finder - I deleted the grapevine text.) Just had one in the garden, singing and feeding in the trees. A garden first (23 year list!) and my earliest in Calderdale by two days. My garden is at top of Bankhouse Wood, Skircoat, next to All Saints Church. Perhaps more exciting to most people - an osprey was seen over Brighouse at 13.15 (K.Lewis)

Nice record Steve, just pipped by House Sparrow I understand. BTW, Cromwell Bottom LNR record was from Mike Henshaw.

Up to four ospreys were eventually seen heading north over 2nd to 4th April.
