Spring has Sprung!

Had a garden tick today - a Red Kite flew over heading east quite high up.

I was gardening today as it was a beautiful day, 16/17oC apparently. Also in evidence were my first butterflies of the year: Small Toitoiseshell, Peacock, Comma and Brimstone - all looking very smart and fresh. Also had a few Bees and even several ladybirds! Beats looking at ducks and gulls...

Lots of birds singing/displaying today: Skylark, Lapwing and Kestrel and several nest-building: Robin, Blackbird, Tree Sparrow.
