Spring - it's arrived!

April 10th, first frogspawn, 3 clumps,  absolutely fantastic dawn chorus and my first Bees of the year Andrena barbilabris a full month after I saw them last year.  I would hazard a guess that here in Nottinghamshire Spring is about 1 month behind schedule compared to the last few years.  Even the pussy willow in the Sallow tree is only just breaking through.

Not sure that this picture is suitable for younger readers, a bit of a get together in the back yard so to speak. But hey, it's nature and proof that spring is in the air!
