Spring is Sprung

Things are beginning to liven up, and it even stopped raining over Easter while we were in Yorkshire.  A trip up Swaledale and down Arkengarthdale was glorious, with Curlews singing everywhere, 3 Short-eared Owls, Snipe drumming and both Black and Red Grouse.

Back down south, the Slow Worm numbers are increasing and we had our first Grass Snake in the garden yesterday, and a Bee Fly is always a delight.
