The Song Of The Chiffchaff Is Heard

Heard Amongst The Holm Oak

The song of the Chiffchaff was heard in the gardens this morning for the first time this year, in amongst the Holm Oak trees behind the gardener's tea shed. Often the first of the summer migrants to be heard, the arrival is 5 days earlier than last year and 1 day later than the previous year. Between the 21st-27th March 2017 the garden team will be listening out for the sweet song "chiff chaff' as it sings its own name and announces its return again.
