Spring Wildlife

This weekend just gone was beautiful. Lovely clear crisp mornings and sunny days. The clocks went forward too, giving us longer evenings. Last night was the first time in months we’d been able to go out on the plot after work. We’re still chipping away at the weeding around the raspberries in preparation for a new layer of woodchip in the area.
On Sunday morning we walked the dog on the fields and on the way were lucky enough to see a grass snake, looked like a male judging from a quick google search. I think we disturbed its sunbathing.
It’s also hare spotting time now and in the view across one field we were lucky enough to see 5 hares.
The little owl is also around and busy. Chances are the female will already be sitting on eggs so we’re going to put the camera back up in around 3 weeks to see if we can catch some owlet action again this year.
