Following government advice on social distancing all our groups work days have rightly been cancelled.
However, whilst fully supporting this advice I will be walking ( maximum once a day) in our area, alone, recording wildlife and updating this website unless government advice changes. So if I see you and I walk the other way..it’s not personal…ha
On a positive note I have noticed an influx of extra people using our area for walks…which is great and beneficial both for exercise and mental wellbeing. So keep walking and social distancing and I won’t be offended if you walk away from me…ha
So when out walking in our area (at a safe distance) listen for the wonderful spring call of the Chiffchaff…….Chiff…chaff…Chiff…chaff which has come all the way from southern Europe and north Africa to breed on OUR doorstep.
A total of 12 moths were in the light box this morning, 9 Common Quaker moths (excellent count) , 1 Common Plume and 2 Hebrew Characters moths
