Chiffin' Early


Mild, often sunny conditions of late (that look set to last into next week) are enough to inspire extended breaks from the laptop, and both East Lea and the Dams here at Filey are pleasantly full of avian life at the moment. Among the many signs of early spring are Chiffchaffs, which have increased from one to four in the last couple of days, with several singers, several enjoying the spiders on the reedmace, and one or two posing nicely in the sunshine.
