Tuesday 4th June 2013
It would appear the weather is finally in synch with the season, and visitor numbers have reflected that. As if to underline that, owlets have been popping out of the woodwork, maybe signalling that the time of plenty has, at last, arrived. Not before time. It would appear that the wildflowers have caught up as well. Many of the early spring flowers are in fact blooming along some of the late spring ones. The Orange Tip is, for me, the most commonly encountered Butterfly at the moment, which is good news.
On the breeding side of things, we have had a few disappointments at present; the Spectacled Owls and the Northern Hawk Owls in the Breeding Ground have turned out to be ‘fruitless’ this year, but both are very young breeding pairs, and auspices are good for the future.
See you next week.
