Frog spawn and signs of spring…

As yet there are no signs of any Frog spawn at either Raw Nook NR or Toad Holes beck. However, over the years my records indicate that the third week in March is a average time for spawn so maybe there’s a way to go yet…

The Blackthorn shrubs at TH Beck are in flower at the moment and are looking lovely and with a bit of sunshine there could attract some mining bees.

Six Siskin were at Caldene fields on 4/3 suggesting they were moving birds.

Of interest in the very warm weather in February were the sighting of 2 moth species on the 27th at Caldene fields. I have never had a winter records of either the Common Plume or Grey shoulder-Knot….both records sent to Yorkshire moths.
