Spring has Sprung!

The daffodils are in bloom and I spotted my first Swallows on Friday, so I think I can now definitely say that Spring is here at last.

Temperatures were enjoyed of 20 degrees C over the weekend, although that's dropped by almost 10 degrees for the start of the week.

I did a walk along part of the River Earn on Saturday and watched Sand Martins darting in and out of a large dirt bank. I also saw a Treecreeper.

The blackbirds have built a nest in the honeysuckle, so I'm waiting to see if they actually nest there. Activity seems to have gone quiet, even though the blackbirds are still visiting.

Plenty of photos to update with, just got to find the time!
