This morning the temperature rose to 12 degrees, so we visited Pickworth Great Wood in the hope of finding an early butterfly. The butterflies knew better; the first flowering blackthorn is actually six weeks behind last year.

As with other Rutland woods which I have visited recently, Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers were active but there was no sign of Lesser Spotted.
