I went for a walk in Hanbury Woods, Worcestershire today and the first signs of spring are now evident. It was a bright sunny day but quite windy so little sign of insect life as yet apart from a few ladybirds and the odd bumble bee which have been nudged into activity by the recent temperature rise. We are probably 3 or 4 weeks away from an explosion in insect activity and very much dependent on the weather.
Sharing the pond with the Mallards were a whole bunch of Frogs which were in the shallow edges of the pond with a load of fresh frog spawn. Some of those frogs looked very pleased with themselves.
