Gill wins the prize(?) for sending in the first Swallow and a photo as a bonus.
Orange-tip butterflies seem to have emerged with the warm weather seen by Gill, Sue today, me yesterday. Sue also reported a Red Kite over St.Clether on the 5th.
Mary & Gill report first Holly Blue butterflies; very bright Speckled Woods in our field and now down in the garden.
The pair of Mistle Thrushes are still guarding their nest against Sparrow Hawk and Grey Squirrel. My photo shows one having a break and after a quick tidy up and a drink from the stream, back it went.
Mary commented on the last blog to add that they had a grass snake in their garden pond.
On Laneast Down, Dave says at least two pairs of skylarks now and Mary saw a Common Lizard, the first for some time.
So, despite the saying ‘One swallow doth not a summer make…’ I think we can say that spring has arrived!
