And so it begins...

Braving our muddy lawn today to attach an insect house (a Christmas present) to our fence I spotted a clump of snowdrops just coming into bloom.

 
Yesterday two long-tailed tits were picking cobwebs from the berberis to build their teardrop-shaped nest, and on Tooting Common a thrush has been singing loudly from an oak. Spring is on its way.
