Slowly, Slowly

Sunday, April 15th 2018

Spring has been very slow to arrive, but with the temperature, both night and day, set to rise then hopefully flora and fauna will respond.  After months of peering under logs with nothing to be seen a few hardy invertebrates were beginning to stir.

Woodlice, large and small were hiding in the cracks in the wood.  There was also a tiny spider.

Millipedes were also to be found.

Ash flowers are still tight in bud.

There is an Elm at the bottom of the quad bike track and its flowers are nearly open, but need another few days to pass the 'flower' test and be recorded on the Observation Board.
