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!
