At least one storm ago:  Second topless BSOist of the year.  He was wearing some sort of Mad Max face mask and had a leather jacket tied around his waist.   ???
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

They say the wind can make you go mad, and we've had no end of it this past week or so....

It was still blowing a hooley today - but there was moments in sheltered bits that it felt, dare I say it, a bit spring like.

Right enough, on Saturday we saw anti-frog-migration netting deployed along the roadside in the forest, a couple of weeks earlier than it used to be.

Read a tweet this morning by some woman riding into town with her lights on. A man pointed at her lights and said 'you don't need those on now it's light in the mornings again'.

heard first Skylarks of the season singing yesterday (just wonderful)  + frog activity in the pond. Yep, spring is on its way.
