Spring is here – it’s official!

Today is officially the first day of spring, so what better way to start the day than a site visit to Rhossili.  Lots of exciting nature things are happening….

Clumps of jelly-like frogspawn and writhing masses of tadpoles in ditches and ponds:

 Newts wriggling up to the surface and sinking gracefully back to the pool bottoms:

Buds bursting open, leaves unfurling and flowers opening to the sky:

Skylarks singing and spiralling high up in the sky:

Wheatears hopping from rock to rock amongst the yellow coconut smelling gorse:

and Gower ponies with their thick shaggy winter coats watching it all…..
