It is officially the first day of spring. After a very hard and cold winter with lots of snow it is nice to think the warmth of spring is meant to be arriving.
However looking at the local long range weather forecast for the next couple of weeks it appears it is not going to be anywhere near as warm as this time last year.
Earlier this week the first primroses appeared and the gorse is beginning to flower as well. Both are a lot later than the last couple of years.
Below are a couple of pictures from around the site.
