Early

That's a good sighting Cathal, the mild weather has brought them out early this year. Chris

Thanks Chris,It certainly

Thanks Chris,

It certainly has, Ive seen one or two inside where I work on the wing but this one was resting just under the garage door outside of the garage. Unfortunately the cool of the day must have put it back into hibernation. This photograph was taken at 1pm and it was still sitting there at midnight so I put it inside the garage. It was motionless and its still where I put it.

I have spun this pic by 90 degrees, I'll put in a crop of how it was resting- vertical.

Cathal.
