They came home very excited that they'd seen a nuthatch (twice), a jay and they'd heard, but not seen a woodpecker. It sounds like there were lots of birds out enjoying the sunshine as they also saw blue tits, great tits, robins, blackbirds and crows.

The bluebells were growing well and they spotted some woodruff that should flower later in the spring.
|The newly created pond was covered in ice - it wasn't thick enough to stand|
on though, or so I'm told!
They managed to find some fungi - a nice bracket fungus and some King Alfred's cakes.
