Stoat footprints and spring action.
I have cast the feet impressions of a blackbird, moorhen and stoat this week in my ongoing quest to record animal tracks. The tiles are now drying in the kiln room at college ready for firing. There are more bumble bees about now, the crows are all jumping about with mouths full of dry grass and moss and the pond is full of tadpoles. I am working on three empty hives, cleaning up frames and queen excluders in readiness for anticipated spring swarms and a summer of bee-keeping.
