At long last we have had a little bit of sunshine and it feels like Spring is here. It's a wonderful time to get into the garden and look at nature waking up after a long, stormy winter! Please blog about the changes you see in your garden. Have you spotted any birds arriving or starting to build nests? Which flowers are starting to appear in your garden? Lots of spring bulbs have been in bloom for a while- which colours can you see? Have you helped to do any gardening?

I have included some websites and videos on here to help you.

Well I've been in the garden for the last 2 days, tidying things up after winter. I am amazed that there are bumble bees out already. There was a really big one in the house yesterday. Please NEVER kill bees. They are beautiful and do a really important job!

I have noticed that more birds have started to appear in my garden: pigeons, dunnocks, long tailed tits, sea gulls, robins, great tits, blackbirds, gold finches and many more amazing birds.
Butterflies and bees
I have heard the most beautiful calls from my conservatory!

I was sat in the garden very early this morning (drinking coffee and looking after my little dog who had found and eaten lots of chocolate in the house!) and noticed the beautiful birdsong. Things are so much quieter now that you can hear nature around you. I think that there is a bird making a nest in a bush in the garden - I keep hearing lots of rustling. Take care

Dunnocks are extremely popular in our garden at the moment, a lot of tits are appearing as well. Sadly, my cat, Hannah, scares them away, this morning she chased a pigeon!

Blackbirds like a certain tree, so do the pigeons and so do the tits. Robins like a certain tree too! But they also like the fence! 🌲

I didn’t see too many birds today, the birds I saw were delightful dunnocks, confident coal tits, gorgeous great tits and beautiful blackbirds but no peeved pigeons. On the other hand, I heard a cascade of enlightening bird calls - drowning out every other sound. My cat listened intently ( from the conservatory window, luckily. The birds were looking from a distance but most stayed out of sight).

Quite cold, not to many birds, the occasional pigeon and seagull flies past though.🐦

Hello, everyday (when it isn't raining), two friendly pigeons come and sit on my garden fence. They are very friendly and I managed to get very close to one yesterday. I have been in the garden everyday watching birds fly through the sky.

Hi Godzilla - good to hear from you! Really pleased that you are getting into the garden and getting some fresh air! Look after yourself. :)

So far I have seen quite a lot of birds like: sparrows, robins, starlings, wood pigeons, chaffinches, blackbirds and magpies. Also when I have been in the garden, I have seen a lot of bees. :)

I have noticed quite a few bees lately. A lot of people are scared of them but they are so beautiful and do such an important job. Tell your parnets NOT to get rid of dandelions when they cut the grass - the bees need them!
