Out of Hibernation

Coo-er, that's a long gap since the last blog, my excuse being the weather and old age. There has been some activity on the railway layout, more than recent winters 'cos it's been so (relatively) warm. Tree making and scenery painting has featured

but there's still lots of work to do around the engine shed and main station, but progress will slow down a bit now as the demands of the garden and spring birding compete for time

On the subject of the weather, I awoke one morning to find this spectacular cloud formation above the Kingsdown Road, weird wasn't it?

This morning I found the Juniper beside the pond to be releasing pollen in profuse quantities - a reminder of things to come for Asthma and Hay Fever sufferers I guess

and, like Tony Morris, the first moths of the year, Hebrew Character and Common Quaker. My notes show that last spring there was no suitable weather for moth trapping from 7th March until 9th April, with one session on 19th March which produced, guess what - a March Moth!
