hardcastle craggs this morning
a very confusing morning overall, but ended with me walking around the craggs birdwatching. I diddnt really see much, except for 2 male mallards on the water, possibly the first time I have seen them here! Also around were rather a lot of wood ants, or rather Northern Hairy Wood ants and there were quite a few nests around too, which were absolutly swarming with them. When the walk ended I happened to glance upwards and happened upon my first swift of the year, on the first of may too!!
