The Big Spring Watch

With the first Pasque Flower of the season seen on the reserve during my visit on Tuesday this week spring is well on its way. For those who saw “Springwatch at Easter” on BBC the reserve provides an opportunity to participate in their survey as all five signs of spring can be seen on the reserve. Please feel free to e-mail me at records@fbhh.org.uk with your sightings on the reserve of the English Oak coming into leaf, Hawthorn in flower, seven spot ladybirds, Orange tip butterflies and of course the arrival of the first Swallow. See www.naturescalendar.org.uk for more national information.
