To see them in such numbers is such a treat.
and of course there were other spring flowers out too.
All a welcome sight except may be these.
It was also noticeable how bare the trees still look, even though we are now well into May and looking up into the trees it was also strange to see large flocks of tits still flying around, surely they should be nesting now!
From the path we could also get glimpses of the Mere and with binoculars you could see numerous swifts, swallows and martins flying low over the surface of the water. So we then headed to the hide to see what we else we could see.
