More signs of spring

It seems like every day spring comes a little closer at Branton, a walk around the ponds today produced song from almost every tree and bush, Song Thrushes are especially prominent, with one bird doing very good copies of waders such as Redshank and Green Sandpiper. A Little Egret made a welcome visit to the west pond, Coltsfoot is in flower, wetter areas have clumps of frogspawn, whilst in the reedbeds the Frog chorus is in full voice and where last week Adder numbers stood at 2, today that number had risen to 8,spring is definitely in the air.
