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.
