After the brief flurries of snow that crippled Britain snow last month its good to see some signs of spring coming.
The snowdrops pushing trough, sap rising and the return of migrating animals.
I was walking to work when I spotted the distinctive colouring of this fishy visitor and was lucky enough to snap some pictures of it.
Ah you know its spring when the giant pink plush sharks* swim upstream to spawn.
*(what's slightly worrying about this is that in the last six months two bodies have been found in this river, perhaps this ain't a toy but a fancy dress costume)
