Stourbridge

Wildlife

It is now permissible for small groups to meet outdoors, so we might get out in July and August.

Thanks to group members who have sent in new photographs.
In a recent survey Birmingham and the Black Country came top in the UK for species of wildlife identified. I'm not sure whether that is because there is more wildlife or because we are better at spotting it, but in any case it's good to be reminded how much there is to see and hear.

It's the time when a second 'wave' of butterflies is around, so keep looking for those and think about what you might plant in your garden to attract more. I have been nurturing a 'mystery' plant which has just come into flower - it's himalayan balsam - the plague of waterways! It is very pretty but not to be encouraged. A raven flew over my house last week, not seen much in towns (except for the Tower of London). Keep looking and let us know what you see.

If you would like to know more about the group or report your sightings please email Jane Williamson who is the current leader and can be contacted via the message box.
