Nature Notes [Feb. 24th, 2011|12:27 pm]
Tony Grist
I put food out for the birds and the starlings descend on it mob-handed, skriking and spatting. I try not to resent them, but I was glad this morning when one of the collared doves got there first. 

Talking about birds, I see scientists have identified a species of dinosaur that had the strongest hind legs ever. There's an amusing image in the video here of one of these muscly beasts kicking a utahraptor to buggery.

I've just washed the glass in the back door and have left the door open to dry.  For the first time in months it doesn't feel like winter out there. There's real warmth in the sun. On Tuesday, when we were driving up Ashton Road, I noticed  there were crocuses beginning to poke through on the verges.

It seems to be OK now.

The crocus began blooming here last weekend and the earliest of the daffodils began their push a week before that -- not blooming, but breaking ground, at least.

Save the starlings! According to the RSPB, they're in decline and need our love, support, etc.

They're actually quite beautiful when the light hits them. But they are a bit rowdy...
