Ardinning Arrived before 8. Cloudy, a breeze sun occasionally warming. Comfrey, bluebells, bracken unrolling. Mallard ducklings, a dabchick, a woodpecker. Larks & curlews singing & calling. A couple of ravens. Trees greening, fresh beech. One or two cuckoos. Apple blossom.
A couple of the coot nests on the park pond had chicks, spent a while sitting in the sun watching the parents feed and protect on one. Few more photos on Flickr.
The dabchick seem to be off to a good start this year, this nest looks a lot more substantial than the ones they were building at this time last year.
Out for a walk in a very snowy Glasgow. Was surprised to see a few parakeets, at one point flying above through fairly thick snowfall.
