Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus! 1st March, hails St Davids Day celebrating all things Welsh…In Norfolk England we are under siege from the weather but as the proverb goes;

March Comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb….

The month of March usually starts with cold, unpleasant weather, but ends mild and pleasant. (Either part of the proverb can be used alone.) March is com-ing in like a lion this year; there’s been a snowstorm every day this week.

Fine white powdery stuff, le pest du la est il est arrive! gale force winds and plummeting temperatures, March is in like a lion.

With lots of guests arriving at Barn & Beach I’m hoping that St Davids Day is the last of this blast it really is quite disconcerting

The weather means looking after our feathered friends too it is a busy time for us all at Barn & Beach We have a particular favourite at the moment ‘Hoppy’ the one legged Chaffinch who has been visiting daily for weeks now..

Out in the snow he is competing well for his share of the food. sitting below the window feeder patiently waiting for messy blue tits and great tits to spill the seed and then scrapping like a lion for the spoils.

In winter it is also important to look after ourselves and others around, the quarterly visit to the Blood Donors fell timely at the end of February so off I popped, 17th donation, tick!

Tomorrow is the Second of March a Friday this means lots of arriving guests to North Norfolk its like the start of the new season 1 March 2018 is the first day of the meteorological spring!

Until tomorrow we wish you all; Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus!
