We didn’t let the rain stop us as we looked and listened for signs of wildlife, with lots of commenting on the different birds that we spotted and heard. We discussed their habitats and what they would need to make a nest ? ? When asked if we might see a fox and badger in the woodland den, we remembered that these animals are nocturnal and we could see this at night ? ? On our walk we identified the signs of early spring, where beautiful daffodils had grown.
