- The odd primrose is trying on a flower
- I had to wait in the lane as I drove home last night for two blackbirds that were conducting a savage life or death struggle to finish and get out of the way. (I entertained myself by humming the Captain Kirk Duelling In Cage With Giant Forks music. You know the bit I mean...)
- I found a newt outside our back door last night. (I think he was just hanging out in a newty manner, rather than waiting to burgle the place)
I hope all of this activity will not be rudely cut short. I know it's been cold, beasties, but it's only the start of Feb, we could have weeks of freeze to come yet!
