Diary 10th-16th April

More spring signs with emerging plants and inverts and a couple of birdy arrivals.

15th April
So, the middle of April and a couple of additions have taken us to 250. Not quite though as a spider of Pardosa sp. (wolf spider) isn't down to species level. There may be another like that, but it's close enough to half way.

250 Pardosa sp. A wolf spider 11/04/2014

A sunny start to this morning saw frosty leaves but warming quickly. A spider which attached itself to my face in the woodland will be keyed out later, and hopefully there can be some butter/hoverfly action at lunchtime (there was - one GVW!)

Back pond looking happier

Anemones abound

Even the path is drying out

Barren Strawbs flowering everywhere
