Ashton Keynes:  Garden sightings.  In addition to the two red-crowned Lesser Redpolls a third bird turned up today with a gold crown (with only a vague hint of red at the front), reminiscent of the bird from the previous two winters.  I don’t think it is the same bird though.  Blackcaps are beginning to feed on sunflower hearts on a regular basis. Still about 4 birds visiting, a few usually linger into early April.  Currently about 50 frogs in the pond and first spawn today, one day later than last year. Three Smooth Newts last night, all females, plus a further 5 females in a neighbour’s pond.    John Grearson
