Spring stuff

Today's springy highlights:

My first Sand Martins of the year (6 passing thriough Maxey GP)

Lots of Coltsfoot in bloom at Maxey GP

My first Peacock butterfly at Ferry Meadows CP

Lesser Celandines in full bloom at Ferry Meadows CP

Spring moths in the garden included Shoulder-stripe and Hebrew Character, both of which are new for the garden

That said, I am slightly worried by a couple of Mallards flying around over the garden while I was dealing with the moth trap. Last year, I think there presence in the pond had something to do with the lack of tadpoles
