During a walk down the Linwood moss road and through the community woods over the last couple of days. See Link below
The woodpecker was drumming on a distant tree, a good sighting of three Roe deer, two females and a Buck with his antlers starting to grow ready for the rut in late summer. The wild cherry blossom is just starting to bud, and the pussy willow is breaking out with their furry white tips on the branches, preceding the leaves later on in Spring.
There are signs in the garden as well, Blue tits are visiting the birdhouses, the magpies are back and rebuilding their nest high in a beech tree behind the garden.
The frogs are back in the pond no sign of spawn yet, bit early to start seeing the newt’s though.
A few visitors to the feeders.
The Goldcrest is europe’s smallest bird, we have two that visit on a regular basis.
These two colourful birds often flock together, this was taken by the trail camera as, I had strategically placed it under the fat balls and seed feeders by the potting shed.
