Spring Firsts of 2022

Walking with Dillie on Onny Meadows in Craven Arms today, I heard my first Chiff Chaff, chiff chaffing away. It was definitely on it own, no one was chiff chaffing back.

I saw two Long Tailed Tits, without any hangers on, paired up and flitting about.

And at Kingfisher Corner I saw my first Butterfly, Tortoishell.

My moments of small joy for today.
