With sunshine, rainfall and hail all appearing in March, the wildlife has been in abundance, whether on land or on the water.
Sand Martin's arrived in force at the beginning of the month, slightly earlier than in previous years, but the warm spell in February seems to have upset the internal clock of many of our wild and plant life.
Ringed Plovers made an appearance, and poor frogs and toads had no chance when the herons found them! Many pictures were sent to us of herons eating frogs for breakfast, dinner and tea, with the herons looking particularly proud of their capture!
Not to be disheartened though, our amphibian friends made sure they were seen, with mating season in full force and frogspawn seen in the lakes.
