Three Brown Hares turned up on Sunday apparently. I was away in Yorkshire celebrating my mother's 93rd birthday so I only discovered them today. There is no difference between the sexes so we have no idea if they are Jacks or Jills and capable of producing leverets but we will be watching.
Five male Pheasants decided to spend the day in the gardens but the Partridges were braver and stayed in the field. That could have been a mistake as two buzzards looked down and thought, "Food!" Luckily they were more interested in Hare for lunch but after a few minutes of circling they floated off in search of something slightly smaller.
These made me laugh .... "You can't see me, right?"
Then there were the Robins ... Love's Young Dream!
I have spent most of the day going back and forwards to see the hares so I noticed the Wren, the Kestrel, the Sparrow hawk and the Pied Wagtails through my bedroom window.

I am fully aware I should be in the garden now ...LOADS to do! Hundreds of seeds to plant, tons of clearing up to do ...... I had aimed to fill the seed trays on 15th February but for some reason I started to paint the kitchen that day! I am now 10 days later than I planned but there's always tomorrow .... until there isn't!!
