Spring signs?

Lawnmowers a-go-go round our way at the weekend and I managed to swish a few flying critters from the back garden. We've been here before though so I expect snow by the end of the week!

Prior to that I finally scored a butterfish, which I saw on almost every trip to the coast last spring, and a lovely hermit crab with passenger. Also my 49th moss - Funaria hygrometrica.
