Nature notes

Sunlight streaming into the bedroom as I'm getting dressed, just after 07:00. Frost on car roofs, and ice on the pond. When I go to cut holes in the more-than-cat-ice on the pond, I see the first amorous tangles of frogs under it. They kick off into the depths as I start sawing.

On the road to work, along with the folk with headlights on in cloudless streaming sunlight, a cock pheasant standing on the road, unconcerned at my approach, even as I drive past him.
