Yes, lovely
Your alder seems well behind. Here, the catkins are quite expanded and green.
Doubly interesting considering this
So have they come and gone?

Thank you for the comments.

The alder catkins have been and gone, that link

is actually a neighbour of today's tree, but they were both in full bloom back at the beginning of January.
