After a dull, damp and misty start to the day Thursday didn't turn out too badly with some hazy sunny spells at times and a little bit milder than we might expect for the middle of March.
We had the afternoon out and about locally. First call was Colton Junction to catch a steam locomotive 61306 Mayflower bringing the Cathedrals Express from London Kings Cross to York.
Next it was off for lunch at a local farm shop. As we were leaving after lunch Sue spotted some lambs and managed to take one or two photos.
It was then a visit to a couple of garden centres where we bought a Trachelospermum Jasminoides Wilsonii a white, summer flowered climber and a couple more Anemone Blanda to add to the two that were looking a little bit lonely beneath our small Acer.
I've no more news of nest box cam activity. Thanks to a Windows update we didn't have any images of our great tit leaving the nest box early in the morning but a great tit did visit the box around lunchtime.
Of course we don’t know whether or not it’s the one who is using our box to roost in overnight. I don’t know what you think but it looks like it would be a little bit cramped for space with two adult birds and a family of youngsters. I suppose the birds know what they’re doing.
