Pilning ST55/85-ish

Spring-like at last, with sunshine for much of the day and a heady 15 degrees C according to the car, 10 degrees warmer than yesterday. Shame about having to work but some forays into the garden produced a brief bumblebee sp, flyover Meadow Pipit, and Common Zebra-spider romping about on the wall. Hoping the moth trap might produce something after five blank nights on the trot. Additions in March so far have been:

131 Mistletoe on orchard trees
132 Rabbit (first mammal)
133 Buzzard
134 Common Mouse-ear (Cerastium fontanum) in flower
135 Springy Turf-moss (Rhytidiadelphus squarrosus) on the lawn
136 Grey Heron flying over the NW corner of the square
137 Common Rough Woodlouse (Porcellio scaber) when I finally made the effort to look under a plant pot (a spider got away though)
138 Common Zebra-spider (Salticus scenicus) a stripy female
139 Meadow PIpit heading north
140 Field Forget-me-not (Myosotis arvensis) in flower
141 Common Feather-moss (Kindbergia praelonga) identified from a Feb collection
142 Rustyback (Asplenium ceterach) one small plant with lots of Wall-rue by the church
143 Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata) leaves only
