I found out about Nature’s Calendar on Oak Trees Studio’s blog just the other day and it’s a really great tool, which I immediately signed up to! It’s made by the Woodland Trust and you can record the dates when you see certain signs of spring (and later on, autumn), like when the snowdrops or bluebells flower. There’s lists of things to look out for, so I will be keeping an eye out for them on my walks. It’s making me more excited about spring!
One thing I did spot today was a Bumblebee! I’m not sure what type. She didn’t look very well, crawling on the steps outside my office, as she fell over on her back at one point. I had to get moving though or I would have been late and I’m not sure what happened to her. I think she had come out too early, sadly.
