Welcoming our Winged Summer Migrants

Most of us think of migrant birds as those that visit our shores in the winter months, to avoid harsher winters in their resident countries.

Here are a few of our favourites to look and listen out for…

The Decline of Flying Insects

bee-on-flower
It is very easy to take the natural environment we enjoy on our country walks for granted, but scientists are continuing to report a worrying trend. Flying insects, including pollinators like bees and butterflies, continue to decline in numbers, despite schemes across Europe to support them.
