Birds, amongst others, were two pairs of nesting Great Crested Grebes; at least one pair of Blackcaps, the usual Blue/Great Tits, Chaffinches etc, Green Woodie calling, Swallows dipping and skimming over the water. A sedge warbler singing away and a couple of Reed Warblers, and this chappie below which was rather nice to see.
Pleased to get a Garden Warbler...
It was great to see the forest coming to life with blossom and new leaf growth!
Shy white throat
and everything's being painted green :)
and today - off to Anglesey Abbey - where it rained for most of the visit - hey ho...
But the Mahonia was a welcome sight with its cheery yellow flowers..
A Dunnock posed - briefly..
Loads of miniature tulips making a carpet underneath the birches!
No bluebells yet - but carpets of Forget me nots
Masses of these cheery little flowers everywhere.. can't remember what they're called... :(
and still some Snowdrops about
Magnolia buds just opening!
These wind turbines can be seen from the road but today I pulled over to get a shot of some of them
It was a really cold day today but tomorrow looks more promising... and it's to be a musical Sunday.. :)
