Spring is definitely here, even if the Spring salmon don’t want to play! Flocks of swallows, sand martins and several redshanks moving up the river daily. The first lambs have appeared on the farm and young mallard ducklings (several broods) showing on the river.
Numerous birch trees in leaf (two weeks early), gean and blackthorn trees in good blossom.
It’s a wonderful time of year, full of promise. The fish are surely coming, although river very very low.
