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

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.

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.
