Warming the soul

The signs were all present and correct to suggest that Spring is on the way - the first day of 2019 bestowed with genuine warmth; at least 4 Brimstones on the wing close to home by mid-morning; that earliest of passage migrants, the Stonechat, appearing locally; very high Common Buzzards passing straight through the air space; and a suite of insects busily nectaring on hellebores, Christmas Box and early flowering heathers. Days like these warm the soul.


The whorl patterns on that buzzard's underwing are so striking!

Could do with you sending some of those soul warming days this way, please. First class, ideally!

I had a first Peacock as well, such a splendid day.
