Yes we have sun instead of rain today and I took advantage of the dry spell to check for signs that spring is here (or not!).
Armed with my DSLR (I dusted it off first) I walked the 3 mile round trip through the woods and then along the Stour Estuary on the return journey Eye-Spying Mother Natures tells of spring.
If you would like to see my journey in pictures please carry on scrolling.
Not a cloud in the sky!
This is a good start to finding spring!
Snowdrops - we could still get some of the white stuff!
Just me and twittering birds. They were too busy looking for bugs to sit still whilst I got a picture of them!
This little fellow on the other hand was quite happy to sunbathe and have his photo taken!
This tree trunk was doubling up as a squirrels breakfast table.
The daffodils are tentative!
The geese taking advantage of the floods!
My journey home along the Stour Estuary. Unfortunately the tide was out at this time of day so not as pretty as seeing a great expanse of water with the sky reflected in it!
And of course you can't go for a walk around Mistley without encountering one of these regal swans.
Well I'm home again and back to housework (blah). I think the consensus is that although Mother Nature has woken she has not quite got out from under the duvet! Maybe in a couple of weeks we will see more signs that the year is in the grip of spring.
