Not much to be seen (thank goodness for the daffodils), but looks ok, as per previous logs. Does anyone know different?

Located in a bunch of Daffodils - looks like a surface block now as top bit gone

Down as 'damaged', but the little bit that I could see looked OK. A clump of daffodils replaces the usual playpen railings.

A retrospective entry of my FBM visits already recorded on Trigpointing UK.
I saw it in spring when it sits within a lovely circle of daffodils. I did not note any damage.
