|First Snowdrops of the year.|
Generally the whole area was almost bird-less but a wander into the pond field mid morning added a couple more common species for the patch.
I could only find one small clump of Snowdrops in flower, making them a bit late this year. This is probably due to the mild weather, these bulbs need a sharp cold snap before a mild one to set them off. Its still like autumn here.
The Alders looked nice in the morning sun decked with catkins,and 3 Bullfinches fed on bramble and docks along the track side briefly.
