    It’s cracking flags down here. Adders spotted basking on the Downs this morning.

    First swallow outside the house.
    Ring-a-ring-o-roses, a pocket full of posies, a-tishoo! a-tishoo! we all fall down.

    Couple of swallows on Monday evening when I was out for my early evening walk. Two days earlier than last year.

    Brimstone butterflies, one in my garden yesterday, one in the Outwoods today. Plenty of wood anemones in the Outwoods, and the first bluebells coming through.

    I've waited over 20 years for the first sighting of a red kite over Monmouth. As I sat down on the patio for supper this evening one rose majestically from my garden! Huge birds and so distinctive from the crowds of buzzards that live around here. Well chuffed.

    They are very nice Wheeze. There are some from Harewood House that fly over east Leeds and they are just a pleasure to watch.

    On today's bike ride other than the usual songbirds, a few curlew and lapwing, I also saw a nuthatch which flew out of the verge right in front of me. I've not seen one in the open before. Also a hare that lolloped up the road in front of me for about 50yds before disappearing into a field and finally, I stopped to pick up a large toad that was in the middle of the road, and I put it in the shady verge.
