A little round-up today, partly to check if my new blog memory is up and running yet- I’ve used all my free space in the last year and have bought a load of memory to keep going with (Wish I could do the same for my brain). The cold weather and winds have delayed the spring migration of birds from Europe arriving here. Conditions are supposed to improve in a few days so Chiff-Chaffs etc may begin to appear soon. The Cuckoos have started their migration and you can track them on the BTO Cuckoo Tracking link (Stanley, it tells you, is moving west through Ghana!) . The Sheffield Peregrine webcam shows they now have two eggs (correction from just now- I was looking at last years!!). And if your community hasn’t done this yet, how about taking a leaf out of the Bradfield book and creating a Community Orchard for wildlife, local people and visitors to enjoy. Here’s the notice we came across walking yesterday. Even a short line of ‘edible hedge’ in your garden, with current bushes, blueberries, raspberries etc can be brilliant. Conditions: A dull day, with a cold breeze continuing the cool spring. Temperature: Max 10- Min 2c.
