    It’s acoming certainly in context of the natural world - birds locally have been very vocal recently, bulbs are coming up, nights definitely drawing out and one of my favourite sightings: rooks renovating rookeries around the area

    First snowdrops sighted on yesterday's dog walk. Birds are definitely more active and have seen deer more often than normal over the last 2 weeks.

    Just got back from a run.
    A young roe deer buck crossed my path earlier. Admittedly it was a quiet, rarely used footpath but rare to see them out and about mid-morning.
    Spied some very busy jays, more snowdrops and in the woods, the first shoots of bluebells poking their heads through the fallen leaves. Made what was otherwise a rather lacklustre run quite enjoyable.

    We just moved house on Friday and were wondering what sort of birds we might get visiting our rural garden. We'd barely been in the house half an hour when a Mistle Thrush landed on the kitchen windowsill, had a quick look inside and then flew off into a nearby holly tree. So that was a nice start!

    There has been quite a bit of spring action this last week with the mild spell, thrushes singing, trees starting to bud, our ducks (domestic) starting to lay,daffs growing fast. This is often the way, then a cold snap reminds everything that it is still the middle of winter!

    I am reliably informed that mole trapping season is about to start, I keep my head down for a few months
