Signs of Spring

A bumblebee and a tortoiseshell butterfly in the garden this morning. Stock Dove singing on March 1st (a lot later than usual) and the Green Woodpecker heard last week for the first time in a while. A Bee moth in the house since monday should appear in June so is unusually early – the previous earliest record in Breconshire being April 7th.

    Our stockies have been in and out of the dovecote for the last three weeks. Last year it was in use until September.

    There are a pair of stock dove quite busy in a hollow tree close to the house and they have been for about two weeks now.
