The sun was shining as we set off, soon become glomy and then a few spots of rain when we were furthest from the car and it was chucking down by the time we got back! The joys an English spring!

What a pleasant morning despite the breeze still having an edge to it. The bluebells may be passed their best but other spring flowers are still looking good, especially the greater stitchwort.

Probably the nicest afternoon of the year so far although still a chilly breeze but somewhat more gentle than of late. Highlight was the grass snake swimming in Rushy Pond.
