Lesser Celandine, now coming into flower.
On a more cheery note, there are exciting things happening around and about in"the wild". Our garden and the surrounding fields are getting even more attention than usual and I'm looking forward to the end of term in a week.
Paranchus albipes, a common enough Carabid but I'd not previously found it on the patch.
Bembidion bruxellense, I have found this here before but in litter, this was in the burn's gravel, 2nd county record.
First frogs here were last year, now frog spawn.
Milax gigantes, NFM and new for the patch.
Arion flagellus I think.
Green Cellar Slug with Common Shiny Woodlouse and Common Rough Woodlice.
One attempt with a light trap, but a bit half-hearted I brought it in at midnight, a blank. It has been so cold here, and rained a lot.
Not much avian to report, Kestrel, a migrant, Pintail, a pair briefly. The Oystercatchers always lift the spirits though.
