Spring on its way

                                            Snowdrops hit Queensbury.

A grey day but a bit brighter p.m. and very mild.  Snowdrops are now in flower in Chapel Lane graveyard and crocus are just opening, remember that we,re a month behind up on the top of this hill, Cherry and Apple Blossom trees are usually dying back in Brighouse before ours even break into flower.
Got a report today of a Blackbird sitting on a nest whilst the male brings it food , its in an annual nest site in a hollybush in a customers garden and he thinks its possibly on eggs.
The Foxhill park Common gulls are slowly drifting away now leaving just 8 remaining along with a few Black Headed whilst Collared Doves are pairing up and becoming very vocal.
We,re in to March tomorrow so owt could happen,
BS.

I noticed a dramatic drop in Gull numbers in the general area yesterday.
