Happy New Year

Sunday, January 1st 2012

A new calendar year, the shortest day already in the past, and soon we can look forward to spring.  Today the Honeysuckle buds are bursting and catkins are covering the Hazel trees. Yesterday the ringers put out another 6 large boxes to accommodate the very vocal Tawny Owls.

Hazel Catkins

Seed heads, like this one of Self Heal, will soon be replaced by new leaves and in the mild weather green leaves are pushing through the soil all over the reserve.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!
