Sorry, no new videos at the moment.
Early morning walks are now regularly accompanied by various bird song. This morning I was very pleased to hear a Mistle Thrush for the first time this year. At one time it was so loud it must have been in one of the trees surrounding my garden but I couldn't see it.
A few days ago I spotted this insect resting on the waste pipe from the kitchen sink.
Not sure whether it was a bee or a hairy fly:
This morning I spotted the second Small Tortoiseshell butterfly of the season. It was looking somewhat ragged so I guess it was had overwintered and was now warming itself in the sunlight falling on the front door. It was 'shivering' just as bumble bees do when they are warming up the flight muscles:
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.
