Yesterday was the first official day of spring, so what better excuse to get out exploring the great outdoors this weekend?
We’ve put together a checklist of things to keep an eye out for, whether you’re out on a countryside walk with the kids, or are heading out with a camera and want some springtime photo inspiration.
If you love attracting wildlife to your garden, a pond is an addition you should definitely consider. Once your pond is dug however, it’s also important to maintain it to keep a healthy habitat for frogs, newts and even bees, who need water to make honey.
Finding new ways to spend your free time and entertain the kids isn’t always easy, but what better way than to let nature do the work for you.
In Autumn there is a wealth of colour and abundance of fruits and nuts, plus wildlife preparing for the winter giving you plenty to spot on a woodland walk or a trip through the countryside, and around the UK there are certainly plenty of places and open countryside to visit and enjoy.
Next week, 8th-14th June, is the RSPB’s ‘Make Your Nature Count’ week, where nature lovers up and down the UK are being asked to monitor the wildlife visiting their garden over a one hour period during the week.
With each new day our little pond is getting ever livelier. The frog spawn became a population of tadpoles a couple of weeks ago and they’re really travelling now, straying away from the familiar edge where they began life and exploring the whole pond.
