HOUSE MARTINS visiting the buildings where they will make their mum nests under the eaves. They are only checking - they will come back and start building in a little while. I’ll let you know when.

OAK BUDS bursting - they contain both leaves and catkins.

ROBINS famous for nesting in in all kinds of unlikely places. Look near the ground in hollows, nooks and crannies, climbing plants and log piles. They may already have babies in the nest.
