This morning's sunshine tempted us to have a look into Wallington to see how the gardens are progressing. This has always been a bit of a hotspot for Nuthatch but over the last couple of years the numbers seem to be down. We did catch two or three brief sightings nevertheless.

Alongside the lake above the walled garden was this Robin

 and which seemed to insist on having its photo taken.
Once inside the walled garden we soon saw a Grey Wagtail although difficult to get near which is much easier later in the year

There were at least three GS Woodpecker drumming away in nearby woodland and good numbers of Chaffinch in every area we visited

 As you will expect the gardens are looking good with the spring bulb  well on

and the woodland carpet is just starting to be formed by flowering Wood Anemone. Another week and they should be in full flood.

On the way out a couple of Buzzard were to be seen close to the road
