This year is rushing past, and where has Spring gone - or have we even had it? Its been a nice few days anyway, and I want to share with you a picture which was taken by last week's guests. They are such a lovely couple and such keen photographers. The final day of their holiday, and they walked up through the Mangerton Valley and spotted this little fellow. Beautiful photography, thank you. Is there a more beautiful bird than the Kingfisher in this country?

I can feel Spring is just round the corner. There is evidence of toads! We have a grebe on the lake (this is a very unusual visitor for us). Also - an extra delight - a beautiful barn own gliding about the tops of the reeds. All very exciting. My neighbour's geese have started laying - so mine are generally a week or so behind. I have been out in the garden - just tidying things up, but I am aware that there is a cold snap forecast!! Hey ho.
