The Chiffchaff Have Arrived
On a beautiful warm, sunny spring day, the first Chiffchaff has been heard in the college grounds having made the long flight from the Mediterranean and western Africa where they spend the winter. Six days later than last year's arrival date, 21st March, the Chiffchaff was seen at the top of trees at the far end of the broadwalk singing its wonderful song that heralds the arrival of spring and the first of the summer migrants.
The Chiffchaff was last heard in the gardens 21st September 2015
