After ‘doing” Europe we had to come back to the Arboretum this morning for some normality … beatiful early spring day and not too many people about to spoil it.

In the quarry pool a huge racket was being created by singing Wood Frogs while at the bottom of the sliding hill a pair of Fox Sparrows were rummaging about and a Brown Creeper showed near the Black Walnut plantation.  Plenty of signs of early plant growth too.

Nice to be back (now check yesterday’s post to see where we have been)
