Monday 2nd. March 2009

I thought they were going to give us a miss this year , then , whilst having breakfast this morning , Carol spotted a male Siskin on the feeders .
I shot upstairs for the camera and by the time I got to the back bedroom window , it had flown down to the path . I managed a couple of long shots , then the next door neighbour opened the back door and it was off .
I waited for it to return to the feeders , but it wasn't to be .
Reports of more Adders today , also an early Grass Snake and a Great Crested Newt , but , given the cold temperatures forcasted , they will probably return underground again , and wait for the proper Spring .
