Goldcrests in Southfields

I have been moticing some of the signs of spring; from chionodoxa and tulips in the churchyard, and the purple carpet of dog violets beneath the olive trees, to the long tailed tits gathering nesting material, that I saw on a walk to Wimbledon. Our garden bird bath is now used daily by a pair of blackbirds and a few goldfinches have taken to visiting the feeder, but today Ruth came in elated by an encounter with two goldcrests, met with a mere 100 yards up Lavenham Road. After last year’s experience I am just waiting with anticipation for the first Orange Tip to fly by as that will for me  mark the true beginning of Spring.
