The trees were alive with birds, all of them flitting around looking for mates or, having already paired up, busily gathering material for their nests. I got a good look at a couple of male Bullfinches showing off before a female, who seemed to be playing hard to get! Seeing these lovely colourful birds is a real treat as, sadly, they are not as common as they once were in the UK. Bees too were in abundance and I even saw a butterfly, the first I've seen this year. So, it may be raining tomorrow but today was definitely one to be out and about and enjoying the lovely world we live in.
