Just around the corner...

..... Spring!! Although it was a murky, miserable day weatherwise, signs of Spring abounded, Mallards mating, Long Tailed Tits collecting nesting material and Blue Tits checking out nesting boxes. Lots of Snowdrops are out now too! Also here is a Mute Swan

We love these common little birds, so colourful, vocal and always nice to observe

Tree Sparrows

A rather localised bird, a rarer sight than they used to be unfortunately
