Meadow news - May 2020
In May the birds are in good voice defending their territories. Wrens, Blackcap, Reed warbler, Cetti's warbler and Garden warbler can be heard along the river walk. Cuckoo has been heard a couple of times. Water voles are all along the river. Early season butterflies at this time include Common blue, Orange tip and Small tortoiseshell. A few damselflies are on the wing including Blue tailed and Banded Demoiselle. The pond area looks lovely with Ragged robin, Daisies and buttercups giving colour. Paths are dry and have been cut for easy walking.
