Yesterday afternoon the temperature rose to 15 degrees C, tempting even the little Common Wall Lizards (Podarcis muralis) out of their homes, and into the sunshine.
With the sudden appearance of these charming creatures (as well as yet another HUGE fly-past of noisy Cranes), it looks like spring is definitely on its way.
N.B. Some idea of the sound of the Cranes may be heard at http://www.thisfrenchlife.com/
