Springwatch on the Common for May and June has sadly been postponed till 2021. Has anyone been out spotting our feathered friends, print out the form below and record what you have seen! you might be surprised!!
Besides our resident Thrushes,Tits, Finches and alike I am already hearing Blackcap, Chiff Chaff around the area now along with a trio of Skylarks over The Ashwells and Gomm Valley fields. The lengthening days will soon welcome Swallows and Martins to the pond area, keep your ears and eyes peeled for those first sightings and make a note of the date. If we can all do this whilst taking our daily exercise in line with the government guide lines, then we may be able to compile a more comprehensive “Village C19 list” for this year. Not quite the original intention but will be a worthwhile exercise and will enable us to further enjoy our daily walk.
Please print off a copy of the attached and fill it in with any notes you may feel are relevant. We can then all have a big pow wow get together in the fall with a bit of luck and compare notes over a few pints, hopefully in a Pub !!
