The last week or so of March has seen a rise in temperatures and increased daylight hours as the
end of the month marks the change back to “summertime”. Colours are starting to return to the
Dee Valley with daffodils on the outskirts of many villages welcoming visitors and primroses nestling in some sunny wayside nooks. The calls of nesting rooks in the churchyard next to Llangollen Railway yard can be heard in the early mornings along with beak tapping on hard surfaces and wing drooping, typical of these birds’ “courting” behaviour.  Further along the Valley, at both Deeside and Corwen pairs  of kites have been observed, indicating the further northern drift and settlement of this bird of prey.
