We found a primula in the garden, which had just flowered! This is not a great photo but you can see the leaves at the bottom. It could be elatior, but I will have another look in spring.
On the way into town, we saw a crow with some white feathers on its wings. He stood out against the hillside. On the way back, we counted the steps down into the valley and came up with 277. Later, on our usual walk around the valley, we saw how the tree-felling has really made a difference at the fishponds. There were some different fungi along the way.
