The cold spell still lingers. March was colder than any of the preceding 4 months, and April is carrying on the trend. Temperatures barely climbing above 2° or 3°C (35-38°F), and snow on the ground. This is Brighton racecourse early this morning.
There were one or two dog-walkers about, and a handful of birds. The magpies were relatively abundant, and though I could hear the skylarks I only managed to spot one of them. Tricky little things to see, but nice to have them active again. I’m sure they would welcome some warmer weather.
