That's early grass B__g_r_d. Cold wind 40, 50 or maybe 60mph with hail showers all day.
Sheep hiding anywhere they can get shelter.
Another big blow forecast for tomorrow night.
Did notice yesterday Daffs were through 2 or 3 "and Snowdrops are out, about same time as last year.
Spring will come sometime.
