A bit of a stretch for a phone camera but here is a Nuthatch that has been visiting our feeders the past few days.

Frog Spawn Soup!

(viewed 1030 times)
Where there was none yesterday, this morning frogs have been busy populating this small pond adjacent to a footpath and laying a buoyant mat of eggs. They were still spawning as I took the photo. Time to ready a jam jar.

A Rash of Snowdrops

(viewed 455 times)
Out and about late in the afternoon I came across this isolated patch of snowdrops, which to see in a wild rather than a contrived setting makes them all the more special.

I also stood and listened to a song thrush perched high in a tree, singing its heart out under the spotlight of the evening sun; there is no better sound than a melody sung by one of natures virtuosos; magical.
