First signs of Spring!

I enjoy all seasons as each one brings new things in the world of wildlife. But you really can not beat those first signs of spring. The sight of frog spawn, the first grass snakes draped over the reeds soaking up the sun, butterflies emerging and the sound of the chiff chaff. For me it is a sign of longer evenings to explore and days spent in sunny meadows…
