Singing Wood Warbler

One of the most charismatic bird-songs of late spring is that of the Wood Warbler. They love mature Beech woods and were once to be found all over Greater Manchester. Sadly, not any more, with the male in this weeks blog and gallery being the only one in the County. He has been singing now for more than a week, within three miles of the Town Hall, but to date has not found a mate. The problem is repeated throughout the whole country and no one has the answer so the Wood Warbler continues to decline. click here
The hot weather of the last couple of days produced five different butterflies in a 400 yard stretch of our local canal. Hedgehogs have now returned to our garden with two feeding most nights.
