Finally we come to the third and final part of my posts from the trip earlier this month, which also encompassed Spurn and Kilnsea. At this point it was nearly a month ago, which is terrible on my part! Advertisements
I was quite surprised to realise today is five years since my first post on this blog. It’s been an interesting journey.
Back to Heslington Lake now, and some slightly unusual behaviour I have been observing.
It has been fascinating watching these wasps that have build a nest into an old rabbit bolthole. They are literally a hive of activity.
Last week we had a trip to RSPB’s Middleton Lakes reserve near Birmingham. It’s a pleasant place to spend some time, but delivered one genuine surprise that defied the birdbooks.
A few weeks back I was complaining about the inability of Small Skippers to ever stay still and let me take a photo. Happily that has now changed.
Right now the garden seems to be a haven for all manner of pollinators, more than I have yet had time to identify. So feel free to chip in. Every evening the flowerbed is alive with sound and movement.
How many non-native species do you think there are in the UK? Ten? Fifty? A few hundred? Keep going upwards…
Day 26 is really a second part to Day 25, coming from the first ever Local Nature Reserve, established in 1952. Aberlady Bay.
I struggle to believe we are already two-thirds of the way through 30 days Wild. I struggle even more to believe it’s nearly midway through 2017. For Day 20 we get two small but lovely moments to bookend the day.
