I don’t know about you but as the years pass (and seem to blur) I can never remember what I’ve seen when, so this year to jog my memory here’s some highlights from January/February 2014. Hopefully some of these will make an appearance VERY soon.
The wild year started slowly in my patch but by the 23 January there was a brambling on the feeder, along with a mass of greenfinch and goldfinch and the odd bullfinch. The flowers started popping at the beginning of February and I saw my first bee, a red tailed bumblebee, on the 16 February. The month ended with the annual frog knees-up at the pond.
I think I’m ready now for 2015 – but just make sure you throw some wildlife at me really, really soon otherwise I might sink into a deep depression and hibernate until April!
