Winter again

After seeing my first Brimstone Butterfly of the year on Friday my local patch seems to have returned to winter this weekend.

I do wonder how all the butterflies, bees, other insects and plants which started to emerge in the last week will cope with this sudden freeze.


I spent a very cold but fun morning on Saturday in Brasenose woods near Oxford, filming a short sci-fi movie clip, filmed in the B-Movie genre. It’s about how the world might look if People’s Countryside TV are not successful in raising funds to give nature a voice.

    Beautiful shots. Yes, I’ve been wondering that too, having seen my first bumble bee this week and am pretty sure I heard a lapwing and a skylark just a few days ago. All the blossom is looking a bit sad under the snow. Hopefully it will warm up again this week now the solar wind has passed by.
