Just sat on a bench at Hightown looking over Liverpool Bay at the moment.
Nice and calm. Mild at 14c.

There's been a few Mallards in the garden the past week which to me is a sign that Spring is deffo here. Something to do with finding a quiet place to mate or something.

I had a nice walk along the Leeds -Liverpool Canal on Thursday and there were Coots sitting on eggs. It felt like spring. Saw magpies building nests too.

After the winds we had last week, I saw Magpies collecting twigs from the street for their nests, you can see the Magpie and Wood Pigeon nests in the trees along our road.

Aye. The birds habits or behaviour tell us everything we need to know. I also heard geese flying last night over the park . When I was in Bordeaux the migraton path of the cranes from Scandinavia to Africa was an amazing thing to witness and it went on for weeks every March and October.

I'd love to see that.

I've not seen the Sparrowhawk for ages now, but a pair of Buzzards have started to hunt on the big field the other side of the houses in front of ours.

At some point, when I have more time, I am going to look into getting a Hawk,

We're going to Haven in Prestatyn Presthaven for the Easter weekend, looking forward to the break and the sun. Kids love it playing in the sand dunes.

Spent the last couple of days working hard in the garden, digging, planting etc. Getting warmer and more enjoyable.

One side effect of the heat is I've got a touch of sunburn. However my wife and daughter said my nose looked like a strawberry and to ake matters worse went on the say it made me look like Alex Ferguson.

 ;D The bus route used to be an open topper that ran from about Easter until October, but that got withdrawn a few years ago, & partly replaced by a conventional service.

Few mates went to Portugal[Alvar on the Algarve] on the annual golfing & pissup holiday a couple of weeks ago, & it was rain, hail ecc, the only thing missing was snow, they only had sun for the last couple of days of there holiday, whilst it was lovely & sunny here from the Grand National day onwards. ;D

In Portugal it was nice on the first day last week. Put my shorts on in Lisbon on the train and took them off by the time I got to Porto as it was early evening. 5 days in Portugal and wore my shorts for about 5 hours.

Most miserable spring I've endured in Ireland so far. March was pathetic with barely three non-miserable days and April has so far been even worse with only the Easter weekend being a brief, three day respite from the gray, cold, windy and desperate weather. Can't wait to go somewhere sunny and rest my bones.
