Spring is coming

Well Spring seem to be in the air ,bulbs are beginning to push through the soil , the birds are singing more and there are large female frogs in the new pond .. I hope they spawn.  There is still time for the weather to turn cold and snow to appear , its been such a mild but wet winter. There are bumble bees still flying around , I watched one as it tried to get into one of my bee hives the other day.

We have Black caps in the garden along with all the usual species.

I wonder if my obsessive insect watching will be as bad this year ???
