After lots of rain followed by snow and ice at last the weather has (fingers crossed) started to pick up.
My bird feeders are attracting more and more Siskin’s and Goldfinch along with Greenfinch and different Hawfinch. Lizards and insects have also started to appear.
The Little Owl has been around but I haven’t pointed by lens at it.
Large groups of Cranes have started to return, flying high in their V formations over the hamlet.
The cold snap has however taken its toll on amphibians. Newts trapped in frozen small pools have died.
