Wildlife Sightings - September 2017

  • Thu 5th Oct, 2017

Warm westerly weather systems dominated September 2017. Despite the lack of easterly winds this was a busy month and there were some great birds and other wildlife around and at the end of the month the visual migration watchers got their rewards big time!

Wildlife Sightings - August 2017

Settled warm weather for most of the month brought a fabulous range of wildlife sightings to our region. Early emergence for many uncommon insects and lots of scarce species were also recorded.

Wildlife Sightings - May 2017

  • Sat 3rd Jun, 2017

A mainly dry and increasingly warm month brought many naturalists and birders out into the field leading to some great sightings. Good weather suited many emerging butterflies from Duke of Burgundy to Brown Argus. Sighting of the month though was much bigger an impressive Black-browed Albatross!
