No jokes were played on us today, but Brenda is gearing up for Easter week. Today she took a wedding and we played some duos for the guests, as we know the local bride. The other thing that did not happen today was any wildlife watching! Brenda did see a blackbird in the garden carrying nesting material, and I heard a flock of Brent geese flying over, but basically that was it until I happened to look upwards mid-morning and saw this…
Brenda is noticing larger patches of wild flowers appearing, so hopefully more new species (and maybe even some new moths!) might be just over the horizon…
I’m also expecting to see more summer migrants in the coming days, but I’m heading off to Cardiff for a music conference tomorrow, and then on to see my Mum in Shropshire on Thursday, and then to Malvern College for a video shoot on Friday and Saturday, so I’ll be busy, but will be keeping my eyes peeled (strange term!) and my ears….open? strained?…for birds, so maybe I’ll see a few new things. Brenda will almost certainly have some moths and flowers to report on from Wells.
No new species for April 1st:
TOTALS TO DATE:
Birds = 151
Moths = 14
Wildflowers = 37
