Spring it on…

Spring has a arrived! And I’m not just saying that because BBC’s Springwatch is in its last week… My hard drive (not a euphemisim) has been struggling to keep up with my camera! There is action (again, not a euphemism) everywhere!

This week you’d be hard pressed to find a corner of Burley where there wasn’t some kind of wildlife occurrence…errrr… occurring?!

Here’s some highlights of what was occurring last week:

Very excited to spot a female goosander along with 5 youngsters on the river Wharfe

Also heard a cuckoo by the river Wharfe.

Loads of small fry in the river keep hoping to spot a kingfisher but no luck yet.

Swifts are still as mesmerising as ever and can be seen all over Burley in Wharfedale but are quite good to watch on the green by Peel Place in the evening.

Keep catching glimpses of one dipper but very shy

Plenty butterflies around the hedgerows including orange tips and speckled woods

The week in pics…
