Welcoming our Winged Summer Migrants

yellow-wagtail-square

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. In the summer months, when these winter visitors have left for home, we welcome several other species of birds that come to the UK to rear their young. Many of these birds travel from Africa, making this impressive trip to take advantage of our longer summer daylight hours, our abundance of insects in the spring and summer (ideal chick-fodder!) as well as the UK’s fewer predators.  There’s a good chance of coming across some of these summer visitors whilst out on your iFootpath rambles. Here are a few of our favourites to look and listen out for…

They also perform a vital role as a network of green spaces and corridors that allow birds, insects and other wildlife to spread and thrive. So how do you put a price on all that? Fields in Trust, a charity that champions and protects our green spaces, has done just that, through a detailed piece of research. The answer is a huge £34 billion and the details behind this are fascinating…

Seven Sweltering Summer Facts

summer-day

After what has felt like an endless winter, at last summer is on the horizon. Love it or loathe it, we are heading into those months defined by lighter evenings, BBQs, flip-flops, beaches and ice-creams. It’s that time of year when you can almost feel nature growing beneath your feet and see it bursting all around. One of my favourite things about the summer months is that it is much simpler to go out walking; there is no need to wrap up in layer after layer of outer clothes, no muddy boots to clean when you get home and no muddy dog to contend with (well, unless she has sniffed out a year-round swamp somewhere!). To help get you in the mood, here are seven sweltering facts about the summer season…
