Spring is on the move.
The Cherry Plum trees are flowering near the top of Pittern Hill. It won’t be too long until the Blackthorn (which produces sloes in autumn) gets going too.
At Kingstree Wood (at the top of Pittern Hill, just after the windmill tower) there was evidence of both deer and moles.
I watched a tiny goldcrest in the hedgerow by the chicken farm – very hard to photograph as it moved several times a second, hopping from twig to twig searching for food.
Mother’s Day frogspawn – the first in our pond in Banbury Street. Fresh this morning.
