First Day of Spring!

Sunday, March 1st 2015

Rumours of frogspawn had volunteers out hunting.  This morning in the sunshine, this can be seen by the bright strip at the top of the photograph, Catherine captured these frogs on their way to a pond.  Judging by the sunflower seed case on the frog's leg, these two have been near the bird feeders.

Later in the afternoon, frogspawn was spotted in two ponds, in the pouring rain.  This can be seen by the large rings on the water and if you look closely there is frogspawn in amongst the vegetation.

By late afternoon it was snowing!

Snow!

It was almost a white out over the heathland!

Strong winds this morning settled to a calm afternoon.  All in all a typical first day of spring.  Perhaps we should wait for the equinox on the 21st.
