I don't visit here enough despite it being fairly close by. This visit is early April, Easter Monday. Of course in April the trees are still mostly bare with a little growth just starting to show.
It's a haven for birds, we saw a Buzzard overhead and in the trees Greenfinch, Magpies, Blue Tits, Great Tits, Robins, Long Tailed Tits.....
The pondlife was fantastic and we spent quite a while watching the toads
Spotted the first Small Tortoiseshell butterfly of the year too.
