Spring has Sprung

With the days getting longer and slowly warming up, why not get out and enjoy the spring. Although the weather has been somewhat wet of late this has not stopped the plants and animals. Everywhere you look something is happening, spring flowers are popping up all over the place. Snowdrops are almost over but are being replaced by Crocuses and Daffodils and even Tulip leaves are emerging. Hedgerows are bursting into life with Blackthorn out in bloom and Hazel catkins opening up. You may see Hares starting to chase each other around the fields or even spot an early Butterfly looking for nectar.

With all this wet weather, it's a great chance to look for animal tracks and signs. A nice piece of damp mud could harbour no end of footprints from Hedgehog to Water Vole, Brown Rat to Fox, maybe even a Badger or Otter if you are lucky enough to be in the right place.


So why not get out and explore, take your wellies, a camera and probably your waterproofs and enjoy the spring and see what you can spot.
