The first thing I did was get out in the garden to take photos of the various birds (like this robin) that seem to be really starting to ramp up the singing in readiness for the fight for territory and mates in spring.
And then on an excursion to one of our favourite pubs on the marshes at Geldeston there were multiple pairs of mute swans. Again presumably they are readying themselves as pairs for breeding. There seem to be lots of mirroring behaviour, with the pairs moving along dykes feeding in graceful symmetry, which is a gift for someone with a new camera to play with!
