Not too much happening lately and with the end of the False Spring and a spell of Northerlies, things will probably slow down further. At the Old Vic the birding highlight was a flock of Fieldfare (rare this winter locally) but otherwise very quiet. The Blackcaps, Bullfinches, Siskins, Brambling and most of the Redwings have gone and replaced only by a couple of Chiffchaffs so far (interesting that the wintering Blackcaps didn't stay to breed and will be replaced soon by birds that move in for the summer). Elsewhere on the Old Vic front the moth list has been creeping up slowly, the mini-farm is ticking over (put another raised bed in) and a few developments on the mini-zoo including some Aquarium dramas.
I managed to get over Beddington Farmlands last week and met up with Zach (the first time this year). We've kicked the local election campaign off (more on this to follow). Spent the weekend recording the campaign song. We had the Hackbridge Neighbourhood Development Group AGM yesterday. Also completed on the new flat in Hackbridge last week and work commences tomorrow to get it ready for rental.
