Spring has Sprung, surely?!

I'm convinced spring has arrived, yes its still a little chilly but the bird song in the woods today and frogs busily laying eggs in pools of water means, in my book, spring is here and that's something to get excited about!

Penninghame Pond was particularly nice this afternoon, woodpeckers, tree creepers and long tailed tits all flitting from tree to tree.

Another good trail to visit at the moment is Barhill Woods in Kirkcudbright. Its quite a short trail but if you stop to watch the birds and take photos like I do it could take around 45 minutes.
