Birds and fritillaries

Got home just that bit earlier today, so nice to see the garden before dusk.  Robins were flapping in and around the pond, enjoying the slight warmth of the day.  Also really pleased to see the start of the Crown Fritillaries just coming up.  It's their third year in the garden, the first year they were ok, the second year they were disappointing, so I have my fingers crossed that this year they will put on a show.  Currently the forecast is looking good for Saturday, I might get a day outside if I am lucky.
