February.


If Candlemas Day [February 2nd] be fair and bright, Winter will have another flight:
But if Candlemas Day be clouds and rain, Winter is gone - it will not come again.


Time will tell with the above quote! :-)

My Daughter found a Barn Owl pellet in Norfolk during a holiday in December 2014 and dissected it a week ago. Amazing tiny little bones that are possibly those of a Vole.


 
 
 
 
A flying visit was made to feed the hungry waterfowl at Brake Mill Pool at lunchtime today. Green Woodpecker (my 1st of the year), Buzzard and a volery of Long-tailed Tits being the highlights!
 
My garden has been very quiet today......probably because a Sparrowhawk put in an appearance!
