If you go down to the woods today - April

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Tue Apr 10, 2018 9:52 am

If you go down to the woods today expect April showers and flowers.

The brown carpet of winter has been completely replaced by vivid green, speckled with primroses and wood anemones.

The first blossom of Spring has arrived quickly followed by the first butterflies and bees, trying their hardest to dodge the raindrops.

First cuckoo

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Sun Apr 22, 2018 11:02 am

‘Cuck-oo – cuck-oo’.

From up in the trees above the badger sett I could hear the first cuckoo of the year calling.

It was difficult to work out whereabouts and in which tree this male cuckoo (only the male makes the ‘cuckoo’) was calling from.
