It’s nearly a month since Winter Solstice and it is definitely more noticeable that the sun is setting later.
This time last month the sun was setting around 3.45pm. Today it set at roughly 4.30pm. This has meant that I can start getting in a bit of photography after school.
The woods are starting to react to the slightly longer, if not warmer days. The Bluebells shoots and primrose leaves are beginning to break through the leaf litter.
The hazel trees are full of bright yellow catkins and small buds are appearing in the hedgerows and on the trees.
Even the birds are beginning to be a lot more noisier.
Last week I was really please to be awarded runner up in BBC Wildlife Magazine’s blogger awards 2017.
This week I’ve been getting ready for the Big Garden Bird Watch
I’ve added a few more feeders and cleaned the old ones out. I’ve been trying different foods to attract different birds.
