Signs of Spring.

The frogs have been having a field day in my small pond-at least 25 are busy spawning at the moment.  Plenty more of all sizes seem to be wandering round the garden.
Had four Goldfinches down at lunchtime-the most for several months, as unlike the last few winters they have not been visiting in large numbers.
A female Blackcap spent a while in the larger shrubs and was joined briefly by a male. So far this year I have had seven sightings, five of which have been in the garden, which is by far my best ever winter total.
