Promoting observation, free range exploration, sense of place and citizen science, through the field notes of a naturalist.

Saturday, 7 June 2014


Made my way this morning to that large area of bracken and gorse dominated heathland otherwise known as Cwm Lickey. With the skies still dark and the continued threat of another bout of thunder, lighting and heavy rain I didn't venture too far in case of getting caught out by a trouser wetting downpour. Linnet, skylark, tree pipit, meadow pipit, raven, redpoll and willow warbler weren't too difficult to track down. A horse grazed meadow that had clearly been agriculturally improved in recent years was supporting a population of around 150+ common spotted orchid.
