On this week’s walk I saw two butterflies and a large bee. Not certain if there is enough nectar for them yet. It is not clear if this is a hint of spring or an indication that winter never really happened.
No spring lambs or flowering Bluebells though as the woods are full of Wild Garlic and Bluebell plants this can not be far away.
The sheep must still be on winter rations as when I stopped for a break a flock stampeded across the field to demand food.
It is surprising how much noise a flock can make and who vaguely intimidating they can be.
