The gooseander is nesting again in a chimney pot (unused) on the farmhouse roof. (We've seen the male and the female on the pond or flying about. So they've definitely turned up for the third year.)
There's a duck laying eggs in the middle of a thick shrub in the garden.
She appears, with her two drake pals who live round the pond, at sheep feeding time to share the sheep proven.
Next thing, we'll be seeing the swallows arriving in early April.
