Well despite it being very cold (still got double layers of thermals on)The birds are all at it and yesterday caught a couple of my pine martens mating (on cam). Robin is busy making nest in wood shed. Dunnock has chosen a gap between our oil tank and the wall, and to my absolute surprise one single crocus has opened up full bloom nowhere near where I actually planted crocus (don't know the plural)out the front of the house, those that I planted at the back of the house are just beginning to show through the ground.
Had to drive to Oban today and saw a glorious display of snowdrops carpeting a hill beneath the trees - just lovely - pity it was raining, so did not stop to take photos - and how come they have spring and we don't? ( it is ok I do know, much higher here and they are near gulf stream - just jealous)
