Record temperatures for February were recorded in Britain today at over 20 degrees. I only had a brief walk across to the local park and there was lots of evidence of an early spring with the blackthorn looking really special.
I didn’t see many birds but I saw later in the day that lots had been spotted. I must have been idling in the sun.
It looks inviting, doesn’t it? You have to walk under a motorway though.
It’s hard to believe it is only February.
The blackthorn blossom is beautiful
The bull rushes were spreading their seeds in the gentle breeze
The Canada Geese were enjoying the sun too although they were occasionally agressive to each other.
The trees know it’s only February – no signs of buds yet
