So much for the early spring. There has been ice on my pond the last two mornings and cold near freezing winds since Sunday. My tadpoles have hatched and can’t be enjoying the weather. They seem none the worse for wear, which is more than can be said for many of the plants that were making an early start. It will be tough for the early migrant birds too, although there was a chiffchaff singing bravely at Kilminning this morning and another sandwich tern past Sauchope.

The chiffchaff singing at Kilminning this morning – fairly well puffed out against the cold, but happy enough to be back
