The Long-tailed tits were so close to me today, it was fantastic! Maybe less than a foot away, great views for a few seconds, then they were on their way again. The Magpie I did see was once again collecting nesting material, this time it looked like moss so maybe close to finishing their nest. 2 of the woodpigeons were mating, another great sign of spring, we’ve missed most of the snow, hope for a few fine days soon!
