Horribly wet spring

I can't remember a spring like it in recent years. I've only just heard my first local Chiffchaff - 3 weeks later than last year. Migrants are beginning to return in some number snow though so fingers crossed.

The fields opposite the house are flooded and the farmer is losing lamb daily to the wet and the cold. We counted 4 dead lambs yesterday.

Blackbirds had built a nest in our front garden but deserted due to the wet and cold.
A pair of Song Thrushes are being particularly secretive so must be nesting nearby and a Robins carrying nesting material somewhere in the garden!
