The next ‘wave’ of flowers in our meadow…….
While taking the pictures, I disturbed two frogs – I have to watch where I put my feet!
And – the birds are very busy – baby sparrows begging from their parents – thrush, blackbirds, sky-larks and wren singing their heads off – green finches, meadow pipits, dunnock, linnets, goldfinches, stone-chats – not forgetting the starlings. And…twice now, recently, Mr. Harrier, swooping over the whole area, searching, searching for an unwary vole.
We saw the first Red Admiral butterfly of the year, this morning. Also green-veined whites.
Go on – have a go at letting your lawn go to meadow – lovely things will turn up!
