Spring has arrived

I have at last heard the cuckoo over Yew Tree Heath and although he is over a mile away flying over Ipley Inclosure he can still be heard over the din that the sky larks make to prevent predators from finding their nests .

On Sunday Molly dog and I walked Buskets and heard two cuckoos  and saw one flying from tree to tree .

When flying they dip and surge upwards much like a woodpecker but they are much bigger, the size of a large pidgeon

Last weeks warm weather , yes 20c on thursday 21st , has really brought out a bumper crop of primroses and bluebells. although since the temperature has  of dropped and it is chilly with easterly winds, at leadt its dry

Also to be seen in the open are violets , especially in areas that were cleared last year.I'm hoping to pop over to the nest cam in Holidays Hill this week so I will report back soon on the fledglings
