This is my nature table, although mostly virtual because its not a good idea to pick wild flowers any more and my photography isn't good enough to catch birds way up in the air.
First some Pheasant feathers
We called these Shirt buttons but the proper name is Greater Stitchwort.
These were so common back in the 60's not quite so numerous now, but there are a few on the road verges close to home
Cowslips aren't as prolific as primroses but there are a few down the road from home
I can almost always hear them singing way up above the field beside my meadow. Sometimes it's possible to work out where they are but too high for photos. When I walked the footpath across the field on Monday,
I spotted 3 all singing and rising vertically. The clip below isn't mine, I've borrowed it from
I wonder what will be on my May Nature table? (it's another way of filling a blog post!)
Thank you to everyone for frothy coffee comments yesterday and hello and welcome to new followers.
