NATURE JOTTINGS. APRIL 13.—Large numbers of guille- 9 mots and razorbills have already returned to the rock-shelves on the cliffs their pelagicl wanderings which usually extend over a period of six months have again ended: spring is urging them once more to land. Many of the birds are love- making, but instead of indulging in sweet- toned utterances, they grunt. I could not, yesterday, see any pUlffins on the water be- low the lighthouse: but, although they generally make their appearance with the guillemots, there is seldom more than a handful at the best of times. Wheatears have ceased to, be rare in the district, and chiffchaffsa,re to be heard in more than one wood. Wet are waiting now for the willow wren. "A. O. A." has been good enough toO" show me the whereabouts of a clump of j white-flowering sweet violet plants (Viola' odorata v. alba) which he recently dis- covered. Of course these plants may pos- sibly have been dropped there, or have gone astray from some garden, but never- theless the plant is well established. There is a spot in the neighbourhood, not fa.r from a public raa,d) where the flowers of the! sweet violet are mauve, not the usual purple, a peculiarity which has rightly caused no little curiosity. I understand that many flowers were to be found at this latter spot some few years ago, but probably that because it is in too conspicuous a situation the plant is now slowly and surely disappearing.
