Spring Wildlife in your Garden
As the days are beginning to get longer, wildlife begins to grow. Look out for buds bursting and leaves beginning to unfold in trees. Carpets of bluebells begin to appear in woodland, but see if you can spot any in your garden.
Hibernating animals start to make their appearance after a long winters sleep. Queen bees are the first bees you’ll see flying around looking for nectar after surviving the winter, but more bees and butterflies will begin to appear throughout April and May searching out the blossoming buds. At night time look out for the familiar hedgehog and frogs or toads.
Keep an eye out for squirrels as they become more active in the spring time. They may even use your garden to store their nuts.
