    • Spring may have been a challenge in the garden but wild flowers have thrived. Skived off for a walk down to the coast.

      I live in a part of the UK with very mild winters. Please take this into account before thinking "if he is sowing those now...."

        • Hadn't seen the starlings for a while. Yesterday however what a racket when they all appeared back. Looking out this morning, they're with young ones decimating the feeders

          • A seriously big flying beetle landed on our front room window. A longhorn beetle of some kind. It was good for 30 to 40 mm long.

                • You are right. It is one of those sort of things that usually fly away the moment you get the camera out as they are equipped with very sensitive camera radar.

                  • Dactylorhiza maculata Common Heath orchid. Not as many about as usual. On the coast path a few hundred metres north of us.

                    • Old lime tree at the side of an ancient byway. For scale the knobbly bit is about 7 feet across.

                        • That is stunning Bones.
                          I was just reading they can live for over 1,000 years so that could have been a young tree during the Robin Hood era!
                          How cool is that?

                            Same tree with its winter face, I think it looks more friendly in summer..

                              • No photo but I was sat watching a great tit in the garden today flying down into the grass and tugging at something. It did it 4 times and then didn’t come back , so I went over to see where it was.
                                Turns out it was pulling off fur from a dead mouse!
