Signs of spring at Pensthorpe on my latest blog: http://wildlifelocalpatch.blogspot.co.u ... chaff.html

My first chiffchaff of the year, eggs and baby bunnies... what more can you ask for at Easter?!

What a few weeks! It's been a while since my last blog post, but this is a good 'un. I've been back to Sculthorpe Moor with some of my university ecologist friends, and we saw my first ever water shrews and a lot of bird life:

The next blog will be about the bluebells and Foxley Woods, but I want to visit one more time first...

An overdue blog about a Spring Migrants workshop I attended at Cley Marshes in Norfolk a few weeks ago. Take a look at the species we saw, some were first timers for me!

A blog post about rearing and releasing five painted lady butterflies with my pupils (especially my STEM Club) at school. We had great fun with them and were very surprised at how much a chrysalis can move itself!

Lots of baby birds to be seen at Pensthorpe at the start of half term! Spring is now well and truly in swing: http://wildlifelocalpatch.blogspot.co.u ... birds.html

My latest (if brief!) blog post about the little fledgling birds we've had on our feeders recently - I love watching the starlings!

I went to RSPB Minsmere with some friends last weekend, we saw loads of wildlife, including bearded tits and an adder! Take a look here: http://wildlifelocalpatch.blogspot.co.u ... watch.html
