The natural environment surrounding the parish is rich in native flora and fauna, and includes important colonies of endangered animals, insects and plants.
We have recorded here some of the natural events that have occurred and invite you to submit your own wildlife observations for the record.
Please send your observations to the following e-mail address: LSnaturediary@gmail.com
Remember to include in your email the following details (a rough guide will do, you don’t have to be too specific):
- Date and time of observation
- Location of observation ( as much detail as possible, including weather conditions )
- What you saw ( E.g. First frog spawn of the year / Large Fox chasing rabbits / Roe deer Doe and two fawns etc. )
- What it was doing
- Who observed the event ( your name or the person you are reporting on behalf of )
Despite being in the dead of winter, trees, bushes and other plants are already starting to show signs of the New Year. Daffodils are already appearing and, in some cases even blessing us with a cheery yellow wave. Blossom on some trees is also putting in appearance. If you have any specific examples, please let us know.
