Spring has sprung!

It is now feeling like Spring is well and truly here with the last couple of sunny days and longer daylight hours. The corvids are busy building nests - it was quite interesting standing under a rookery at Manor House on Monday with frequent sticks being dropped by birds in the canopy above. Even a chip landed by my feet after a loud fight between two rooks!

The fields are becoming full of new born lambs and the woodland floors are greening up with the leaves of wild garlic. Look out for the male catkins on trees such as hazel and for the tiny red female flowers that are just emerging from their buds.
