Amazing sunshine brings out the falsies

AMAZING sunshine today and a walk through a local limestone valley was a Spring treat.  

The small flock of redwings flew off in fright from the trees towering over the muddy footpath, but the chiff-chaff sang heartily from a willow branch.  A brimstone butterfly shot by.  The field edges were be-speckled with primrose flowers, scattered liberally like jewels in the grass.

One special treat was a single clump of false-oxlips - there were no cowslips flowering within sight and this bunch were quite a way from the the primroses, standing out proud over the close cropped grass - wonderful!
