Happiness is...

... the first returning Wheatear of the autumn

That may get Mr Lethbridge out, but maybe not.  Up to 77 species for the month, already past a feeble February and joyless June and level with jestless July. I reckon 100 species for the month is do-able and, with my freedom from debenture in September, on the cards then too.

Meanwhile, if you can find a Long-tailed Tit flock, Chiffchaff numbers are on the up and with them Willow Warbler with some looking sparkling in their yellowness.  Soon they'll be joined by flycatchers–can't wait!
