Firsts


Each year, I note my firsts as a marker for seasonal progress.

24 February     first brimstone butterfly
14 March         first frog spawn in our pond
17 March         first chiff chaff
  3 April            first glimmer of bluebells in the woods

Some have been early, some have been late, some have been about right.

Now I'm waiting for the

first cuckoo
first swift...

but I'm not hurrying the year on, just enjoying the wonders of nature.
