Ewelme & 1st garden Butterfly

Monday 7 march 2011
A cold, bright and sunny morning with some warmth in the sun as the morning went on.  29 bird species including 2 Water Rails, 2 Great-spotted Woodpeckers and a Green Sandpiper plus a flypast of a pair of Canada Geese.  The first of the Coltsfoot (feet?) are showing though not completely open whilst I was there.  I wonder if the frogspawn will survive the frost?

It really must be spring as a Brimstone flew past the window as I was eating my lunchtime sandwich.  Although the title suggests it was the first garden butterfly it was my first anywhere!
