Wall of Sound

Early morning at Old Sulehay. Sadly no Lesser Spotteds, but still:
Buzzard, 2,
Green Woodpecker, 8, at least, calling
Great Spotted Woodpecker, 5, at least, drumming,
Nuthatch, 3, singing on three different territories,
Treecreeper, uncounted, but lots singing and four seen,
Marsh Tit, 1,
Jay, 3,
Bullfinch, 1, singing softly,

Perhaps the highlight, though, was the cacophony made by scores of Redwings, all singing together in the treetops. A veritable Wall of Sound, as Hair Bear would probably have us believe, reminding one, he would continue, surely, of a murmuration of Starlings.

Later, on my cycle in through Ferry Meadows, I heard my first singing Chiffchaff of the year.
