Ticking off the early signs of spring

in #nature4 years ago

It's just past Easter and it's still not warm. In fact, we've had more snow in February-March than I can remember for 5 years.

But I'm still spotting some of the early signs of spring so clearly the birds and flowers and getting ready regardless. So far I've seen:

  • Blackthorn bushes flowering
  • Snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils everywhere
  • Frogs in the garden pond
  • New growth on the sedum plant
  • Buzzards skydancing
  • Bumblebees in the garden
  • Blue tits preparing the nestbox
  • Coots nest building on the river
  • A slight tickle of hayfever
  • My cat is staying outdoors for longer

What signs of spring have you spotted so far?

Sort:  

So far we have no plant life yet, and more snow is coming on Friday and Saturday. BUT the Robins are here, and THAT means spring for us. 💜

The Sea Gulls and Geese are returning as well!

Yay! Slowly they come back.

More snow, yikes !
