We're having wonderfully mild weather at the moment - it feels more like March than January (and last year March felt like May!). This pleasant weather is very nice but worrying too.... We are promised some cold weather in the next couple of weeks though....
Other signs of Spring:
I was woken yesterday at 2.54am by a blackbird singing;
Today,by the Water of Leith, a song thrush was singing a duet with a great tit (they sounded as though they'd been rehearsing together for ages, the great tit's 'teacher, teacher' was the perfect accompaniment to the song thrushes tuneful phrasing.)
long tailed tits, blue tits and great tits were chasing each other excitedly through the bushes alongside the Water of Leith.
The dippers were also singing on the river, but dippers, like robins, sing practically all year round.
The wonderful orange ladybirds are still huddled together in hibernation in the tops of the fence poles though......
