I was fortunate to get out for a couple of hours on Sunday. After the long cold, dark days of winter the local wildlife is quickly responding to the arrival of Spring. First stop an early morning visit to the Heronry at Chorlton Ees followed by a walk through Kenworthy Woods and finally an evening  stroll around Chorlton Water Park.

Another male Toad on the search for a mate. Hopefully he’ll be lucky later on this week - the females aren’t too keen on cold, frosty evenings.
