During the really cold weather the Robin was usually the first bird to appear in the garden but until recently it seemed to have been missing. Maybe it couldn't get a look in with all the corvids and Starlings milling around. The other morning it managed to find a clear slot.
Quite a few birds use my nursery pond as a drinking place and I have seen a Blackbird pick out pond snails to eat. Now it had decided that the floating Koi sticks I use to feed the tadpoles also make a tasty snack.
The sudden increase in temperature recently has warmed up the garden pond and several of the resident Smooth Newts are now evident.
Have a great weekend enjoying the sights and sounds of the wildlife around you.
