February Highlights

With the very different weather that when saw in February I managed to do a couple of local walks.

Nice to see the Snowdrops out in force along with a few Lesser Celandine also shooting up. Again a lot of the common birds where singing Blue tits, Great tits, Wren, Robin, Blackbirds, also a nice Song Thrush.

The local Magpie’s have built a nest in the tree at the bottom of the garden so I will keep an eye on that, don’t think they have eggs yet.

I did see a Woodcock on my early morning drive this week always nice to see one of these birds albeit a brief view.

Several reports of a few migrants arriving at the moment with Wheatear, Sand Martins and Little ringed plover all reported locally.

No butterflies seen yet but hope to see some in the coming weeks as the temperatures rise.
